My problem is since when booting SID4 hides the original C drive and instead mounts shadowc.img file.
So the problem is as follows - SID4 is installed as single boot, and when XBOX boots it mounts shadowc.img and simply I cannot make full backup of C drive.
So any ideas how to 'unmount' shadowc.img so I can access the real C drive and back it up

The idea is to 'clone' already softmodded xbox hdd to a large drive

TRUST ME IT TAKES LONGER ON CLOENING HD when u can just do this.

May be cloning is a bad word. However I want to put large HDD. I cannot simply backup C, becouse I will backup the content of shadowc.img only, and not the REAL C. Somehow I must umnount shadowc.img and then backup and create the linux.iso file.

TRUST me do this

get retail ms dash files ... from pirrup .. then drag them to xboxhdm1.9 then leave ur E epmty put ur xbox EEPROM on xboxhdm then burn the disc.. once u make hd and run it good on the xbox thne u ftp the old xbox hd info to pc then ftp it back on ur new xbox hd.. THIS IS FAR THE BESET WAY OF DOING IT..

i have sid4 and i moded like 6 or so sid4 xboxs and i upgrade the hds on all of them .. and this way it never failes me ... try it .

You can boot your xbox with the game u used to softmod it.When u get to the softmod menu screen,u should be able to ftp the contents of your real C drve to your pc because the shadow C should,nt be mounted.This worked for me. Hope that helps

ok oem retail hd has ur personal stuff.. THAT STUFF ur gonna transfer to pc VIA ftp ....

now get a fresh copy of xboxhdm1.9 its here on hq...

then look 4 pirrup and under his signitres there should be a file called MS DASH....

open up xboxhdm transfer the ms dash files from pirrup to xboxhdm

then grab ur eeprom from the ftp files u alrdy transferd from retail hd and put ur eeprom on xboxhdm ... THEN click make iso win ... it wil fit a cdr .... burn the iso and that is part 1 .. part 2 is the hd connection and preping and lockin.. its REALLY REALLY simple....

so as u see it doesnt sound bad.. all u need from ur retail hd ... is ur eeprom so that way we can lock the new hdd and not end up with #06 ...

as long as u do retail files on xhd and eeprom .. then u 'll get a new xbox hd in no time.... Razz

Nikiiv-Did u try what i wrote?This should work.If you coldboot your xbox with any retail game in(not a backup), the softmod wont be running because its booting from the dvd drive before the hdd.So, just coldboot with the game that you used to do the softmod, then go to the softmod menu screen.once there you can ftp your real c drive.Single or dual boot dont matter. Or just do what Gus wrote.

chris is right if u cold boot u can gain acces.. BUT to be totaly honest i think if u just make the new hd retail then ur good then from there u ftp the old xbox files to new hd ...

just so then we dont mistake our selfs.

but the funny thing is HE HAS FULL ACCES and he hasnt ftp his info..

do that then u put retail ms dash files on xboxhdm ... I'V DONE THIS AND IM SOO SURE THIS IS THE FAR ESSIEST WAY OF DOING IT .... Razz

cris993 is right, however.. I kind-a wonder why coldbooting an retail game does not activate SID, but coldbooting a backup activates SID???
May be bios check media, then understands that this is not a game and runs dash to handle it.. where SID takes place

I forget to mention that almost everyghing went smooth.. I had some problems xboxhd locking drive, so I used a DOS utilities and I forgot to upload evoxdash.xbe at first place, however SID recovered the dash.
SID4 is so great, I can only wonder SID4.5 what will be..

Then I ftp-ied softmodded C and .. I forgot evox on E, however SID saved the day.
