Correct way to HotSwap - for newbies!

In this tutorial, I'm going to teach you the RIGHT way to HotSwap your XBox HardDrive, and I promise you'll get it the FIRST time!

Step 1)

Move your XBox as close to your DESKTOP computer as you can. This won't work with laptops.

Step 2)

Make sure you have full access to your computers IDE (grey/blue) cable and your XBox HardDrive. (Remove any screws and panels.)

Step 3)

Boot your computer, and as soon as you see your BIOS screen (ie. SONY, COMPAQ, DELL) logo, hit the PAUSE button (above the number pad). This will freeze your system at the point it's looking for hard drives and CD/DVD drives.

Step 4)

Boot your XBox. As soon as you see the flubber go away, and the giant X, pull the IDE cable out of the HardDrive. Leave the power in, and DO NOT TURN OFF YOUR XBOX!!!

Step 5)

Connect your XBox HardDrive to you computer. If your using the Linux Recovery tool 'xboxhdm' make sure no other hard drives are connected. If you plan on using Xplorer360, make sure the Hard Drive is set as a SECONDARY MASTER (usually the Secondary IDE is what your CD/DVD drive is connected to. Since your just booting this for Xplorer360, you can keep your CD/DVD unpluged for now.)

Step 6)

When you've finished, plug the XBox HardDrive into the XBox IDE cable BEFORE you power down your XBox. If you power down your XBox before re-connecting the HardDrive, you could cause a hardware malfunction. Just to be sure, always connect the IDE before powering down!

I hope you enjoyed this, and if it worked for you, please write a message of thanks. I've compiled this guide from about 50 sources from around the 'net, and have done this on 2 different XBox's myself.
