If I manage to completly screw up my xbox harddrive (through too much playing around with homebrew software!), how do I go about re-installing everything from scratch, just as if I put a new, blank HDD in the machine. Do I only need the M$ dashboard.xbe in the root of C ?

Correct me if I am wrong, but this is the newbie forum, making that an unfair response.

When I messed up the drive, I just used the exploit, ftp'd into the xbox, deleted all the files on c and e, and copied back the backupped files.

thats not really an unfair post, your supposed to do searches and read before asking a question, which you obviously didnt do, questions like yours have been asked before

xboxhdm is a hard drive manager for the xbox, you can download it from the usual places (sorry, but its against the rules to ask where to download stuff) that will completely format and reinstall all the software you need.
