xboxhdm2.2 is working again biggrin.gif
I changed the bootloader back to grub4dos (I assume the frequent updates to remprep_usb knocked out the bootloader).
FreeDOS is working again. Heres what it looks like now (ugly but working!)

IPB Image

I used the same customised C & E & it booted 1st time with no errors & no truncated files. See below

IPB Image

I also easily locked & unlocked with hdparm/hdm tools - no problems.
I also unlocked with master passwords on atapwd too - no problems

Note:
I consider this working release a final personal build & will not be supporting it.
I will get the 1st post updated in due course.

Download here (156mb): http://ge.tt/8p5Sw69?c

quick install notes:

1. Extract zipped files to the root of USB stick
2. Populate the /hdm/C folder with the M$ Dashboard files.
3. Populate the /hdm/E folder with any chosen files (games saves etc) that you require installed.
4. Add the eeprom to /eeprom if you intend to un/lock
5. Follow these instructions to install the MBR to get your USB drive to multiboot (**make sure you select the right drive to install the MBR to. Get it wrong and you could brick your PC!)

just to be clear - you only need to download the Installer (ver 1.1) on the above grub4dos link & follow the install instructions from Section 1 - (Installing Grub4DOS) only.
the grldr is already in the zip file!

rewrite of 1st post uploaded - thanks mods.
I have simplified that post from previous - should be easier to read through now.
I will be changing the download link in due course to somewhere more permanent (ge.tt has a 3mth download life) but I want to keep track of how many times its downloaded.

permanent (Minus) download link now sorted at start of thread - thanks mods
over 190+ people have downloaded it in 3/52 - so there's still a use for it!
I think this brings this project to a close (for me anyway).

cheers

My Motherboard does not have PATA connections anymore, can I use a USB adapter instead?

Generally no. ldotsfan found a couple that sort of worked but not with native xboxhdm - he had to edit and recompile some of the tools. Try searching for some of his posts about USB and disk locking.

That's gonna be troublesome, better dust off the Atom pc, I believe it has a PATA connector, that will suffice for 1.9 or this new USB release. Thanks for the reply

When I try to run xboxhd2 in Konsole, I don't get prompted to enter my mount point, just this message:

CODE
hdm directory not found. No xbox files available.
eeprom.bin not found. No (un)locking possible.


and it returns to the shell prompt. I tried reformatting the USB drive, re-downloading Xboxhdm2 and repopulating it with files from the Xbox, but I always end up with the same result.

Although I noticed the Mount Point for my flash drive is different from what the tutorial says it should be. The tutorial says it should be /mnt/sdb1, but on my filesystem I just have /mnt/sdb (sdb1 does not exist). Is there a way I can get xboxhd2 to search in the correct folder?

EDIT: Nevermind. Figured out a solution. I created a directory called sdb1 in the /mnt/ folder, and created a mount point in the terminal by typing
CODE
mount /dev/sdb /mnt/sdb1
, and was able to get xboxhd2 to start.

I used the XHDM to upgrade from 8gb to 80gb and it's working just fine.

Now I'm aiming for the 2TB, since I got the entire NTSC-US xbox set, to let you guys know, all the games sums 1.4TB.

So, what do you guys think? Will it work? Or XHDM can't format a HD that huge?

xboxhdm can't format drives larger than 256GB properly. Build it with xboxhdm, then reformat the extended partitions with XBPartitioner, then again with XBPartitioner 1.1.

Does it work with soft modded?
