I have the stock 8gb hd with UDE softmod. I have a 160gb hd on order, and will be using XBHDM when it arrives, probably use the "build xbox hd from scratch" option.
When I copy the contents of my C and E drives (and eprom) on to the CD and load it onto the 160gb hd are you saying that XBHDM will not copy the softmodded files contained on the CD on to the new 160gb drive? XBHDM will only copy original XBOX C files? It will not copy the softmod?
If this is true then I need unmodded C files to make a stock xbox hd (stock except for 160 gb with an f drive) and then load up UDE with a memory card and Mech Assault game again? This can't be right?
Some posts suggest it will copy the softmod fine, others suggest using the file browser in XBHDM to place the softmod back into C. If I try and put modded C files on makeisowinbat CD to copy to new HD it will not work?

did you ever backupeed eeprom?.. then maybe you can recover that from unlocked hd.. otherwise you will need a modchip.

Another question I am not clear about. I am getting ready to burn my ISO. I unpacked the xbhdm download and in the folder "xbhdm" there is a folder "linux". Inside "linux" are empty C, E, and eprom folders. I ftp'd my xbox's files to those corresponding folders. Do I just leave those folders there, or do I need to move them down one more level into the "isolinux" folder to get them on the CD?

Great tutor! I read through the part about cloning a hard drive. So, I decided to clone my soft Modded 250GB HD to a 300GB HD. I got it all hooked up just like the tutor. I ran the program and got to the part where it tell you to go have a beer because it will take awhile. In the tutor it says that a stock drive takes 1 hour and a 120GB drive takes 2-3 hours. So far copying my full 250GB HD to a 300GB has been taking 30 hour and 30 beers later and it is still not complete. Does it take this long or do I have a problem ( I know I have a drinking problem) ? I know in the tutor is says that there is no indication of progress but does it tell you when it is done? Please help because I'm running out of beer.

The only problem I had was when I first tried to do it I started with choosing option "6)generate HD key".
xbhdm said it couldn't find an eeprom. I finally determined the problem to be that I used the eeprom from the configmagic backup which is named "eeprombackup", it needed to be renamed to just "eeprom" for xbhdm to see it. Burned a new disc and everything went perfect! That's my .02 cents that might help someone else out.

@Fafhrd.. thnx for the tip.. I never use configmagic but for those who use.. might be handy.. I wonder may be thats why few people get no eeprom found error with xboxhdm..
