I hav an xbox (details below) that when i boot it takes a really long time to load up.
the hdd spins once every second, but not continuously.
when it does eventually load, it says that i hav no data in the E drive.
when i put a game cd in and boot it says error 14 (unable to load dash).
there is no 'important' data on the hdd, so just wondered if there is a way i can reformat the hdd and start ova (i dont hav ftp access)....or does it sound like a buggered hdd?? guess it aint buggered as i dash does load eventually??
only started happening after i reset after playing moto gp, took long time to reset then started booting slow.
cheers for any help
stuff stored on f: drive

Choose format RETAIL drive - think option 4
The retail option will format C E X Y Z - hopefully leaving F alone
can't guarantee this will work 101% but fairly sure it would
You may want to back up your saves - if no pc is about then use boxexplorer to copy the E\UDATA & anything else over to F drive for the time being and bring them back when ya done
(maybe also copy ya evox.ini over as well)

The OEM Xbox cables have been known to be a bit easy to screw up while removing and inserting them during mod chip installs/upgrades.
Also change the drives jumper. If it was set to MASTER, change it to cable select or vice versa to see if this makes a difference.
If the suggested format doesn't help, then it's likely that the drive is dying on you or it is getting insufficient power from the supply.
