A few quick questions that seem pretty obvious, but I just want to make sure.

1. My eeprom is my eeprom is my eeprom... correct?  There are 3 or 4 different copies of 'eeprom.bin' on my hard drive, but they are all exactly the same, right?

2. I have halo 2 in the E folder on my xbox, so if I back that up to the xboxhdm/linux/E folder on my PC, the iso it makes will obviously be too big for a CD-R.  I can just exclude the halo 2 files from the cd xboxhdm CD and ftp them back after the hard drive switch, right?
EDIT: scratch that, even without the game there's .97 gigs, so I'll just burn it to a dvd.

3. I'm trying this with a 200GB drive... how am I going to have to format the extra space to be usable?



btw, this site has been an amazing help. thanks a lot to all the contributors.

1. Correct.

3. I have never gone over 120 in a softmod, but i think Slayers will help you format your hd.

Ok, I got the formatting issue figured out.  I used the Krayzie ndure 1.1 installer, so I just used the "format drive" option in Krazyie's Extras.  Also, I enabled the G drive in EvoX, but it wasn't showing up in XBMC, so I had to change the <useGdrive> setting in xboxmediacenter.xml.

I installed a 200GB Maxtor hard drive and its working fine.  However my G: drive isn't working.
I enabled G: drive in the dashboard of Evolution X and the letter shows up in XBMC.  However it says it has 0MB/0MB.  My F: drive is 129MB and that's working fine.   I tried formating using the Krazyie's UIX exploit but doesn;t seem to work.  There was a thread to try using FlashFTP Client to format it but I get bad command when I call "FormatDrive" or "FormatPath". 

Can someone help?

Have you tried using Slayers to format the drive?

I briefly looked to the Slayer CD to see if i could format with it, but I couldn't find it.  I think i went into the upgrade HD option but I had the impression that the tool will re-format C: and E: drive.  THen again, i don't think i know how to use it.   Where would I find the formating tool to format F: & G: drive in the CD?

Look for this at the main menu and follow it until you get to the format options.
                       Applications / Lock HDD / Format HDD
                            Any HDD Lock / Unlock & Format
                                 Format
                                      Format only F:
                                      Format only G:

Or it will look something like that

I hope people are still following and responding to this thread.  I have a quick clairifying question.

By following this tutorial will I end up with an Xbox that opperates just like my current Xbox does just with a bigger hard drive?  It seems that my games and saves will be transfered over since they are in the C and E drives.  But, will I still have the same soft mod?  Will I still have XBMC as my dash?

Thanks for any replies.

I am pretty sure that you will have to re-softmod your Xbox.

Thanks.  After reading around a bit it seems to be normal to need to re softmod, which is no problem.  I read somewhere of there being a conflict depending on the state of your xbox when you back up your C: drive.  Something to do with the shadow drive and whether or not your mod files get backed up and then there being a conflict when you try to mod again.  Does anyone know about this?  When I FTP into my Xbox I am usually have it sitting in XBMC which I have set up as my dashboard.

Update:
I did have to re-mod and had no problems doing so.

I'm having a bit of trouble and hope you guys can help. I have an older pc so when I run xboxhdm after I choose boot VGA console w/ xbox util. I get a dialogue about an "undefined mode #" and I chose "0" and things keep moving. But then when I'm supposed to type in"xboxhd -a" to format the drive I get a message that says

"This script assumes /dev /hda is the device to be used for creating or rescuing an xbox hd. No disk drive found on /dev /hda (primary master)

I checked the jumpers and they are set right and the hd is working and brand new. I read somewhere that the fact that mypc doesn't have a video card in it might cause a problem. What am I doing wrong?
