Hi, I have a chipped Xbox with Xecuter 2.0 Lite on it. I also have another Xbox that does not have anything else on it and I was thinking about soft modding it. I want to use a bigger hard drive for the Xbox I plan on soft modding.

My question is, can I format like say a 300GB harddrive on the modded Xbox and install MS dash on it, then place it in the Xbox I plan on soft modding and it will work? Locking a HD is only required if you plan on going on Microsoft Live correct or do I have to lock it regardless if I plan on softmodding the Xbox. Thanks

just use xbox hdd maker, its in the files section, for makeing th new hdd. as far as i know the xbox cant partition a hdd that thats why that wont work. and the hdd needs to be locked just to boot up the xbox.

So I can't just used a modded Xbox to do it for the softmod Xbox then? Since it requires the softmod Xbox's eeprom? So, I'm guessing I first have to softmod the Xbox, backup the eeprom and then ftp it to PC. Then use Xbox HDD maker like Snafupossum suggested? Thanks.


I found this tutorial:
http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/xbox-tutorials-141.html
Will that work, or is it too outdated? Willing to take other suggestions. Thanks again.

AH! glad you have this question! my xbox that i had before was actually not modded at all! there were 2 xbox's involved, one that was chipped and one that wasnt. as long as you use the unmodded versions eeprom on the 300gb hd, all will be fine. thats how mine was done. this does work, my xbox is proof that it works.
