I was looking on xbins the other day and saw this video of unleashx preparing and formating a new hard drive automatically. I was just wondering how this is done or if there are any tutorials.

Sorry if this has been asked already I have been searching around and havent found anything..

Thanks,
Teufel

Ah, this is one more thing I need to document.

Okay, all you really need to do is put your back up of C, E (and/or F if it fits) on \CDrive\, \EDrive\ (and/or \FDrive\). You can also use the names CBackup, EBackup and FBackup, GDrive and GBackup can also be use. Preferably, a copy of UnleashX and config.xml shuold be on CDrive already, if not, UnleashX will handle that.

Burn it, pop it in, let it boot and it should detect that you have a new drive. Follow the on-screen instruction and let it finish. Don't select formating of G if you don't have one. After formating all the partitions, it will then copy the files in those folders to C, E and F. If there's no EvoxDash.xbe on C, it will copy itself as C:\\evoXdash.xbe, then finally proceed with booting up the CD.

A few notes: Make sure your xbox time and date settings are properly set, or is set with a valid value. HD must be configured to use Cable Select (CS). Be quick enough to put the CD/DVD into the tray, or the CD/DVD must already be in the tray before hitting the power button.

What exactly happens if the date/time arent set up properly?

I have a dead Xbox HD.. replacement coming soon.. I will probably be using the UnleashX method of preparing the new HD. Xbox has been unplugged for sometime, so the Xbox date/time will have reset to default, is this a problem?

Unless you are using a BIOS with clock check skip feature, it will try to load the dash on the HD first before attempting to boot the disc in the tray. If you attach the new HD without adjusting the time, it will throw an Error 16.

Is your old HD totally dead? If not, it's enough to put UnleashX there, boot it real quick, then shutdown (or of course the stock dash and adjust the time manually). Let it plug for a few minutes, then proceed.

I have X2 4979 bios flashed onto my Matrix Modchip, and I'm sure that version has the 'Clock Check Skipped / Error 16 Fix' on it, so I should be ok.

Phew.. thanks for clearing that up unleashx biggrin.gif
