so this is not the first time i did a hd upgrade, i did everything the same as i remember, made backup eeprom, compied C and E and made iso, ran iso everything was fine...

when i turn on xbox with new hd i get the green screen of death. so i took out the HD and did the whole process over again, same result

i bought the hd after looking at the compatability chart

it the WD5000AAKB


thanks in advance

thats possible. does the hard drive make any noise
try the drive in your pc and see if you can format it and copy a file to it

so i put it into the computer, everything works fine, i formatted it so it would get recognised, and everything worked out fine...

i tried the xboxhdm again, and same result.

maybe it's not copying the files correctly, ( even though there are no error messages)

is there another program i should try??

Use a fresh set of msdash files from Slayer's or CASH disc.

Did you double check the connections for the HD? I usually place the new drive on top of the DVD drive to make it easier to connect everything. Maybe try a new IDE cable.
