Heya, you will need an auto-installer, you can download the xbox-hq one here, burn it to cdrw or dvd-r and your away, I take it your box is chipped and you have the hard drive fitted?

I'm assuming you have your machine modded with a chip or at least you are prepared to do a soft mod?

You cannot just put any HD in your machine either. For your xbox to work off of the MS Bios and run original games and enjoy Xbox Live you must be able to lock the HD.

Here is a resource that allows you to check the compatibility of the HD with the xbox. You just need to insert the model number in the search field and see if anyone else successfully locked it.

If you need clarification on this, we'll be more than happy to help.

Yeah, like realmccloy or themodgod said, if your xbox isnt modded you cannot just replace the hdd. Your mobo is set to work with the hdd in your xbox, and without a mod chip or soft mod, you cannot put in a new hdd.

Sorry realmccloy, youre always gonna be realmccloy to me mate Very Happy
