You need a bios that will support either all the space on F or 130 or so on F and the rest on G

What bios will be good to support the 200 gigs.
I thought the M8plus_16 was the best for ver. 1.6. Is there a better bios to use. If so what size? Thanks

The bios you have is prety much the only one for a 1.6, what dash are you using and have you enabled G drive?

i just installed my 200G on my xbox with evox on it (softmodded). I installed about 4 "stuff" on it and shows up as 173G left on my F drive. I didn't have to use the G drive.

Load the M8 bios you have into EVTool and enable LBA48 using the "Partition 6 takes all space" or whatever it is. This will make one large F: drive that uses all the available space. You don't need a G: drive on a 200gb HD.
Take this bios and reflash it to your chip, then reformat F: to obtain all the space. If you really don't want to reformat F: (ie. you have already copied lots of stuff on there) then you can use the other LBA48 option in EVTool to enable a G: partition and all the additional space will be assigned to that instead.
