OK. I have been using SID 4.5 for a month or so doing softmods, mostly with good results. I had recently softmodded and installed a larger hd on my first 1.6 box using telnet and chimp. Everything was good to go on this box.

Yesterday, I was testing a few games to make sure they were good before selling them on ebay. After 5 or 6 games, I put ht Star Wars - The Clone Wars ( part on a 2 game set with Tetris) in to play. It said something about loading new software and then I got put at a MS dashboard.

I tried booting AID. No Go. I tried rerunning the Mechassault exploit but Mechassault just keeps restarting.

The xbox live menu that shows at booyup is rather strange, too. It only has 3 choices - account mamangement, New Account, and network Setup. None of them seem to work. I can't seem to get to the standard MS dashboard.

I figure, worst case, I can put in the old hd in and re CHIMP it. However, if there is an easier way I'd like to hear it.

I saw a similar thread over on Xbox-scene.

http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?act=ST&f=44&t=669136

They made the comment that this should not have happened because

"A properly done softmod protects the softmod against dashboard overwrites. It uses a shadowc drive when it is operational, and it has the real C partition filled up completely so that a dashboard update attempt fails due to lack of free space."

I used the option that says "Virtual C + Eeprom for HD"

So my questions are:

1. Is than an easier way to fix than switching hds?

2. How can I avoid this in the future

The way you listed is the fastest cheapest way to fix your error and to keep this from happening again i would say dont boot that game. Wink

Do I have to unlock it before copying the partitions?

What about the OP contention that a properly modded box wouldn't have had this problem?
