Set your CD-ROM as the boot drive, not the HDD. If that's set right, disable your HDD autodetect in your BIOS, XBHDM will pick it up anyway.

I got xboxhdm 1.9, but when I run the win ISO maker-thing, it does not appear to be making an .ISO file. Where should the .ISO file be located?

The iso file will be located in XBHDM's root folder. For best results, like I said, do not run from windows. Open up a command window and run "make-iso-win.bat" from the command window.

Everyone,
I am having problems unlocking my HDD to conduct a hotswap. I have tried unplugging the DVDROM cable and the power cable. I have tried waiting until MS shows and swapping, still nothing works. The reason for the Hotswap is XBOX Live update loop. If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

I tried to swap my xbox hd (because I acidently formated it) but I got an error:

Tihs scrip assumes /dev/hdais the device to be used for creating or rescuing a xbox harddrive
No disk drive found on /dev/hda (primary master)!

What do I have to do to swap the hard drive?

Donīt I need the dash of eConfused

Thanks!

If its saying no disk found, you need to attach your drive to the primary IDE channel and set the jumper to master

It worked! My xbox is back to live! Many thanks Greven!

I have 2 more questions:

1-Can I use this metode to install a new and bigger disk?

2-Using the autoinstaller that you have here in the forum, will I be able to play games backups?

1. Yup. This is how I do most of my upgrades.
2. Using the softmod from this site or others you can play backups. The auto installer is to save the hassles with FTP, configs, versions, etc.
