i just had my xbox soft modded by a friend. i installed a 40gb drive intially. i want to eventually upgrade to a larger drive. is it possible to take out the hard drive in my xbox and clone it to a new drive and then install that?

because its a softmod, its more complicated then that. the harddrive you put in has to be locked to the xbox your putting it in, before you can put it in. with a tsop flashed xbox, it would be as simple as what you described. since you already have a 40 gig in there, its obvious your friend knows what he's doing so either have him solder the 2 spots on your motherboard and flash your tosp, or have him upgrade it for you.

well, he isn't around anymore so it will be hard to do that. how difficult is it to lock it to the drive?
