I bought a 200GB HDD from newegg, and i have an Xecuter3 chip. I want to run dual hdds so i don't get banned from live, so i was planning to buy this kit that comes with the IDE cable and all the stuff i need to run dual hdds(right?). So if i want evox and all my music, backed up games, and movies to be on my second bigger hdd, i need to fist install the chip, but then to format it, can i do that if im running dual through the modchip, or how can i format it?
How can i make it so that when i choose my stock hdd it doesn't load the hacked bios, or even bring up the chip menu(if xecuter has one like the Xenium OS)?
Is there a better deal for a kit like that than llamma?(i don't want to build my own IDE cable)
If i bought that kit, the molex switch goes through the power splitter/cord right? So would i have to cut it, and solder in the switch, or am i wrong about where the switch goes...
Also, whats a good guide for setting up dual hdds? I could find a good one...



THANKS

No, i have a live account active NOW so i want to run dual, not change the eeprom. I will number my questions for simplicity:

1) How can i format it? do i need to hook it up to a computer, or can i do it through my chip?
2) Is there a better deal for a kit like that than llamma?(i don't want to build my own IDE cable)
3) If i bought that kit, the molex switch goes through the power splitter/cord right? So would i have to cut it, and solder in the switch, or am i wrong about where the switch goes...
4) With the Xenium ICE I had, it would always go to the Xenium OS menu. If i load evox onto the second hdd, won't it try and make me backup the TSOP bios, and install a dash on the stock HDD?
5)Does the X3 have a way to boot without the chip, other than flipping the switch on the physical switch?
6) Another question...If i wanted to have a clear xbox with a control panel, what case should i buy to match the Xecuter3 Clear Control Panel?

THANKS, added some questions.

1) You can format your harddrive with the AID disk if you are modded. it is all automatic and very easy. I dont know a link for the auto installer deluxe disk but it is free. you can write it to dvd or cdrw
2) i bought my dbdt witch for 2.99, and the molex Y splitter was 3.99. A 36" IDE cable was 3$ and the connectors was another 2$. so it was 15. But, i ruined my IDE cable and the connectors and ended up ordering just the cable off lamma. so I would say mind as well buy the package unless you are good at making ide cable.
3) yes.... the switch goes in the middle of the Y cable. you dont cut your stock molex wire, you cut the Y and then plug it into the xbox one. there are tutorials on how to assemble the wire. It is easy. I had never soldered before and did mine..
4) i dont know anything about xenium ice
5)On x3 when you tap the power button for less then 1 second it boots up with x3 bios. when you hold and press power for 1 second or more it boots up off retail xbox bios. it has an external light that is color coded.
6) probably an official clear one if you can. i hear the aftermarket ones are ok too but more fragile. I would suggest getting your dual Hdd setup to work before dumping 50 bucks into a case, once the setup works then do the physical case mod.

hope this helps because it seems like you are about a week behind me. laugh.gif
