i would like to know a few questions about upgrading a hdd

I have basic info have xbox 1.2 with xcuter 2.6ce with the latest version of evox

ok i im goin to upgrade my hard drive to a 250 gb western digital and the main reason is its only 20 bucks more than a 120 gb hd or i would pick 120. which leads to my first question

0ne: ok one i seen on a few tutorials that an xbox will only reconize 137gb and below nothing higher is that true and is there any problems with bigger hd

Two: i tried to use newhde1.4 from xbins i made iso file and burned to cdrw then i put a old unused hard drive i had 3.1 gb and im pretty sure it wasnt used with information on it plugged the hd and put the disc in would not work at all. just flashed red and green tried to turn it on and off. still didnt work

Three: how many programs are out there to make a new hd to work and what are they


also i did see if it wasnt reading the disc i put my stock hd on with the disc and the worked fine

The 3.1gb hdd is too small. Anyways, get an autoinstaller like AID v2.11. Flash a bios that has lba support, and use the .06 if you want a large f patition and .67 if you want an f and g partition.

Hi Maniac,

Ox is right, the main thing with these bigger HD's is your LBA48 settings. Most recent bios' support this, you need it enabled.

As far as formatting a new drive, I got a slayers disc way back when I did my first chip, and i still use it now when doing a HD. I think v2.6 was the latest one, and on it you can lock, unlock, format, install a few basic apps and a dash, as well as restore msdash. I would recommend using that or a similar auto installer, and then sourcing any additional apps once your up and running.

Hope that helps, and yes the usual places usually helps too.

Norm

Ps. Once your up, ditch evox and install UnleashX

250 GB will work.
AID can be found in the usual place.
Flashing the BIOS with LBA48 support means that the BIOS can support HDDs over 137 GB. You have an Xecuter 5035, I'm pretty sure it already had LBA48 support.
