Copy files for xbox C:\ drive from slayers disk and put the files in xboxhdm's linux>C folder.

i think this means go to slayers disk, copy everything under C and put them into xboxhdm's linux>C folder. but \c is empty already so i dont have anything to copy. geez what the hell is this

I have a question about how to set up the xbox and computer for xboxhdm. I have my xbox opened and the only thing that is unplugged is the IDE cable for the DVD drive. I start my computer and then I stop it before it goes looking for the harddrives. I can set my computer BIOS to boot from the CD drive and then thats all I do. Then I restart my computer and pause it again before it looks. I then start my xbox and wait for it to load up. I have error 13 so it flashes red and green. I then hook up the computers IDE cable to the Xbox one as fast as I can. Now i press space and the the computer looks and all i get is a screen looking for DHCP. What is that? It doesn't find anything and says no boot filename found or something. What the heck am I doing wrong bcause i have tried like 3 times and it doesn't work at all. I have my cd and everything in the cd drive.

Sorry if this is in the thread already...but this thread is LOOOOng.

I Just Softmodded my old xbox!!!! and like everyone else am now wondering how to install a bigger HD.

First off...I have a XBOX with a faulty DVD-drive...so i was wondering if I could connect a second hard-drive right to the IDE cable where the DVD-Drive used to be. \

I used the Ndure3.0 installer for Xboxhdm made a bootable CD-RW and just copied the contets of the Ndure C and E folders over the original ones. If I take that same CD...add the EEPROM folder, and burn a new CD-RW... Could I just copy the same C and E contents along with the EEPROM folder to the Blank HD, Then Use Xboxhdm to Lock it?

I want to make a new HD as simply as possible...Will this work?

PS. anybody got a guess as to how long it takes before Softmods are available for XBOX 360?
