The gist of the problem is that ndure ran out of space during the install, leading to several cascading errors. the first thing I did when I booted xboxHDM was do a backup, and it appears those files are still there. However, I executed the restore fucntion (anfter the below events) and still get error 13. Here are hte details:
I did the hotswap... Reading daddyj's advice on how to ensure the drive is unlocked before swapping, I saw these instructions, and --sort of -- followed them**
- copy one track to the hd
- play the track from the HD, let play for a few seconds
- pause the song
- you HDD is now ready for hotswap!
**It turns out there were 2 (crappy) albums already ripped on the HDD (it's v1.0 refurb purchased recently, apparently they were left over for the previous owner). I played and paused these existing songs beforee hotswapping, rather than copying one over from CD. I assumed it was the same thing. Anway, it took and I got access to the drive. I chose option 1 to install ndure and got the following errors:
(parts 1 and 2 proceeded without error)
cp: /CD/ndure/E/NP11/*: No such file or directory
write error: no space left on device
copying c drive backup
mkdir: cannot create directory 'xbox/c/shadowc/resc": no space left on device
cp 'unable to open 'xbox/C/shadowc/resc/default.xbe: No such file or directory
cp unable to open 'xbox/C/shadowc/resc/evox.ini'. No such file or directory"
Part 3 of 3
Done.. now exiting
I reboot to error 13. So I'm thinking these 2 crappy albums on my HDD (and maybe savegames and other stuff?) took up too much space is what hosed the install?
I guess my questions are:
1) General advice. Is there an easy way to recover or start over? I went back into xbrowser and have listed below the files as they exist now. Is there a manual way of getting the files back into bootable shape?
2) I have 2 other unmodified, stock xbox HDDs from other mods that I have done. Can I just plop one of those in and start over?
Sorry for the lenght of the post but I wanted to include as much info as possible. Thanks for any advice.
Here is my disk structure now as reported by xplorer
E/NKP11 is empty
