my xbox was softmodded by a friend of mine, a couple of years ago almost. i am not sure if this is correct, but in xbmc it is showing as 5838.01...also just noticed that f: is not showing, i must not have made that partition correct?

@kingofhearts, make sure jumpers in the back are set to master and not slave. If that doesnt solve.. try formatting the drive with any pc formatting tool to any file system ( ntfs/fat32).. then try formatting the drive with xbxodhm to build a new hd.

@sunnyxwala, what bios are you using.. format the F drive with xbpartitionar or unleashx

thanks for the reply kingroach but its still not working.... the thing is i cant get to the xboxhdm main menu (options 1-8) with either the xbox hd or the replacement hd? Could something be missing off of the boot disc? I can lock and unlock the hd's just fine i just cant get to the part where i get to rebuild them!

Every time I get to the first screen choosing 1-4: If I choose a number or if I let it boot to the default
(versions 1.6 - 1.9) it will go as far as "Ready." and the computer reboots.
Have bios set to OS as Other rather than a windows OS and hard drives not Auto.
Proccessor is a AMD K6 500MHZ 192MB RAM. Do I need something faster?
Tried it on an IBM 350 MHZ Intel 192MB RAM...same results
Hot swaping the xbox drive on Primary Master CD Secondary Master
Original Xbox drive No partitions
All protection via bios not on
Can boot computer with the xbox drive as secondary master with win2k on primary master and work with the drive.
Installed win2k via the cd drive
using imation cd-rs and easy media creator 8 and easy cd creator 5 to write the cds on an xp computer with 2.66GHZ and 1GB ram (This computer)
This computer has serial ata hdds not easy to hot swap with lol
been trying to get it to boot and reading here for about 3 days now.

I was using xboxhdm to make a new hdd. But my hdd does not seem to be formatted correctly. My dash says I have 123gb capacity on my F drive but I only have 2gb free when I actually do not have anything on my F drive. I did everything over again but the same thing happened. Thanks for any help.

what is your total harddrive size. Try formatting the F drive with unleashx/evox. If that doesnt fix the problem.. Switch your bios to nkpatcher .06 and format F drive. ( you can just format F drive with dash.. no need of xboxhdm)..

Yes, it boots but that's about it. I gave up after making about 6 CDs...lol

It's wierd select "1" gets to "Ready." and the computer reboots.

I'm trying something different. I have no bin file for the bios. just want to redo the drive, without the lock unlock.

Maybe the programs sees that the eeprom bin file isn't there and refuses to boot?

Long story short: son moded box deleted files and reformated. Been trying various file recovery programs.
No luck picking up the fatx (Xbox) files. Have picked up quite a few of the mod files though.
Have gotten new xbox since then, So this one I can play with.
No dvd drive. Used it for another xbox. Other wise would try Slayers tool (DVD).

I have a softmodded xbox with an upgraded drive that broke on me. What I am trying to do is take that hdd out and put it into a new xbox.

I dunno if this is correct but from what I read what I need to do is put the new xbox eeprom into the old hdd and then I will be able to just switch the xbox correct? How will I go about this? Please provide detail help I am new to modding and havn't messed with this xbox in a couple of years. Thanks in advance for the help

you need to unlock the hard drive using old xbox's eeprom and then lock it using new xbox's eeprom.

Update
Got the program to boot and run on a 750mhz with 384MB ram.
Hot swaped the xbox drive
rebuilt the drive (No eeprom.bin file)
Put drive back in xbox...works as good as new

PS
The drive had been repartitioned and reformatted a few times sad.gif
When I checked what was in the hdd memory there was a live account from before blink.gif
Played online with it a few hours that night... worked great.

Many thanks for the life saving program.

FYI
You can get a drive back without the eeprom.bin (If it's the original drive from the xbox) biggrin.gif

Looks like the program needs atleast 300MB ram to operate properly.
At leaste I couldn't get it to work on less.
previous tries were with:
1. 500MHZ with 192MB RAM didn't work
2. 350MHZ with 192MB RAM didn't work
3. 750MHZ with 384MB RAM worked
I have a few old computers laying around... anyone need a antique 286,386 or 486 rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif
Thanks again hope this info helps.

The xbox was Version 1.6
