I'm having a weird problem with a 250gb hdd in a 1.6 Xbox with Smart XX LT OPX.

I've flashed the chip with a bios that supports LBA48 (M8plus 1.6 which I've modified with the proper LBA48 settings). I've performed a complete reformat of the disk using a C-E-F partition structure. When I boot the box in avalaunch and looks in the filemanager I can see that the F drive has 200gb+ free space. Everything looks exactly as it's supposed to.

The issue is that when I start to copy data to the xbox it stops when it reaches approx. 137gb (the LBA48 limit). But as I said, the chip is flashed with a proper bios and avalaunch can see all the diskspace, therefore this shouldn't have anything to do with LBA48... or?

I've also tried to format the disk using C-E-F-G partitions but it still stops when it reaches 137Gb.

Has anyone encountered anything like this? I've modded several boxes in the past and never seen anything like this...

Thanx in advance

Boot into the SmartXX OS and see if it has G enabled or not...
