I'm very new to this whole scene but eager to learn. I was given an xbox system the other day and would like to mod it and install a 120 or 160gig hd. I'm looking for a walk through of modifying a stock xbox and installing a larger drive a step by step if you will. I have read some of the articles here but don't want to do things out of order. Thanks for any help you can give.

Hello bandt and welcome to the XBOX-HQ, we hope you enjoy this and all the other HQ sites we have to offer. Very Happy

To get you going you will need a bit client to download SID5 and AID 4.20 from here: http://www.aidtracker.com/

Once you have the downloads you can use SID5 to softmod the xbox like this: http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/xbox-tutorials-256.html

Now that its modded you need to get that larger HDD running so make sure it is a lockable HDD with this : http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/modules.php?name=Xbox_HardDrives

So if you find the HDD you have will work then we can move on to installing it and we have 2 ways to do it, one way i like is with CHIMP and it is done like this: http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/xbox-tutorials-260.html but if your xbox is a 1.6 you will need to use telnet and the chimp guide has a link to how to do that at the bottem of it.

The second way is with XBOX HDM and the guide for this is here: http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/xbox-tutorials-185.html

Read all that over and take your time, if you need any more help im always here or one of our site members will give you a hand.

ENJOY AND GOOD LUCK.

Yep, the first part of any mod, should always, always be to backup. As a general rule, we say to backup your C and E drives, and your eeprom as Unreal said.

Trust me, so many people make it hard work for themselves when they don't lol

I just checked the system settings on my xbox and the ms dash version says d-1.00.4920.01 , In the softmod tutorial it says that it must be d-1.00.5960.01 to work properly. Does this mean I must use a different type of mod?

Easy fix guy, since you haven't modded it yet you can just pop in any game that supports xboxlive and go though the steps like your going to play on line, doing this will update your dash to the right Ver. for you. Wink
