Clone A 250 Hd To 500?
Posted 15 May 2008 - 05:17 PM
The box was modded with some kind of solderless chip (so essentially a softmod) that was removed after it was setup.
It has one partition, just F, the bios is 5101 Retail and the kernal is 1.0.5838.1
So after cloning could I just enable the G and use xbpartitioner to make the F and G each have 250 gigs without formatting them so the files dont get lost and still not have to worry about data corruption?

The steps could look like this.
1. Backup eeprom to PC.
2. Unlock source hdd (read step 3 first, may not be needed if not doing 1:1 cloning)
3. Clone source hdd to target hdd with any 1:1 disk cloning program. This will follow the old partition scheme though. As you want to alter the partition scheme, you need to use xbpartitioner to format F and G to 32k clusters and your desired space settings. Unfortunately I don't know if the current version of xboxhdm is able to handle this. You might have to ftp the files out to PC, partition with xbpartitioner, then ftp them in.
4. Lock with xboxhdm (depends on step 2).

Can somone clear it up, some say format if it is over 137gb others say 250gb.
I have two boxes both getting a 500gb hd one I want to use just F (so it will use 32k clusters) and one with an F and G (this is the one I wanted to clone) for the F and G both under 250 will they run into curruption if they use the default 16k clusters?
Oh and I am going to just make the hds from scratch using xbhdm so they will be stock drives. Then I will be using krayzies NDURE 1.1 mechassault.
