Help Forhard Drive Upgrade Please
Posted 08 August 2006 - 12:29 AM
Here is my problem:
I get an error 13 screen on boot. It reads the CD-RW fine as the menu on the CD-RW boots if I have the original drive connected, but not if I have the new one.
Here are some things which may be helpful:
My desktop is not working, so I only have a laptop hence, I have to use a CD-RW to do the upgrade.
I burned the CD-RW to have 'NewHDEvox1.4' which I found at the usual place.
I used SimpleXISOv03 to make an xbox iso for it.
I have an XBOX 1.6 with a Samsung drive.
I softmodded my XBOX before and that drive still works fine.
The drive I am attempting to put in is as follows:
Western Digital 60 GB
Drive parameters: LBA 117231408 60.0 GB
set to 'Cable Select'
is working (managed to test it before my desktop died)
Here are some other things:
I occasionally get error code 14 instead of 13, but I think it is just not reading the CD-RW those times.
I softmodded my XBOX with the original drive using MA hence I do not have a mod chip.
The XBOX will read the CD fine when I have the original drive connected. I then (without unplugging but with turning off the XBOX) connect both the IDE ribbon and molex power connectors to the new drive. Then when I turn it on, it gives the error 13 screen.
I got the error 16 screen, but back in the original, turned it on, then back in the new and have not gotten it since.
I have the case open while I am trying it. I doubt it would have sensors to detect that though.
Okay that is every detail I can think of. If anyone could help me with this that would be the best thing ever.

The softmod takes over after the Xbox is booting. The CD reads before the MS Dash can boot.
In other words, you need to build the HD in a PC or a modded (chipped) Xbox.
