Recently I bought a used 250GB HDD (Samsung Spinpoint). Windows recognized it, chdsk showed no errors.
Than I attempted to replace my softmodded stock-hd with the new one and that's a long story:

+ I Used kingroaches-installer & xboxhdm to mod it, everything went fine. Turned the box on, unleashx showed me that F: partition has just 25GB. Tried xbpartitioner to fix it, tried other utilities, nothing worked.
Then I tried to mod it with xbhdm again but the installation got frozen and I had to abort it.
Later on I realized that the jumper was set to 32GBg restriction...

+ Attemped to mod it with kingroach & xboxhdm2 via USB. Bootet from USB, accesed the HD via xbrowser, started *ndure and it stopped because it was waiting for a CD.

+ Next try with Ultimate Boot-CD v4.0. While copying the exploits to C: the procedure was aborted due to insufficient partition-space (?)

+ Tried XBMC Installer Deluxe CD, procedure got frozen while copying file to C:

+ Tried error 5 hotswapping method via lxhdm again the copying-process stopped abruptly


=> Eventually tried kingroach/xbohdm via CD again, during those "3 steps" i got the error-messages
"NKP11, no such file or directory found"
"not enough space on Partition C:"

Tried to lock the HD anyway, got the "drive frozen message". Tried to lock the drive in another PC and it worked.


Now my xbox boots with the UnleashX dash, Partition C: has a size of 0 MB, E: 4,8GB, F: 230GB, no G:
Can I risk it to leave the HD, dash, XBOX the way they are now or do I have to expect something could still go wrong in the future e.g. games start to crash etc.?

1. NKP11 is on E , not C.
2. C is empty because shadow C is enabled.
3. Do you have a source of stock msdash 5960 files? CASH disc, HeXen disc etc.
4. Since you are working from a replacement hdd, you have eeprom backup. You could always rebuild the new hdd from Frosty/lxhdm 's ftp acccess.

There is a NKP11 Folder in E: but it's empty.
If empty C: means Shadow C: then I'm relieved
I've got a complete eeprom-backup from ConfigMagic
I have:
Slayer Disk
Selfmade Frosty/lxhdm disk including ndure installer
XBMC Installer Deluxe disk

For now everything seems to run fine, the error-messages in xboxhdm just worry me something could have gone wrong.

The problems lie in your real C. Cold-boot Frosty's to fix real C - you'll need stock msdash files.

You mean burning a new Frosty CD, with 5960-files implemented and boot from it.
Then format C: and copy 5960-files to C:?
I found the first flaw in UnleashX. When the xbox boots, the flubber-scene has video+sound but the dash misses all its background-sounds, the ones when scrolling or opening folders.

Definitely not - if you do that you'll overwrite the softmod. You need to replace the missing files, but don't modify or overwrite anything that's already there.

Ah ok, thanks for the advice.
But I don't understand one thing. Indeed I got some error-messages during ndure's installation with xboxhdm but UnleashX seems to work and boot fine (aside from the lack of background-sounds).
What will copying ms-dash files, to a C: that's generally invisible in the default file-explorer, do anyway?
Not that I doubt your advices I'm merely curious.
Can I enable the C: partition afterwards, so its space is usable?

NO it's other way around, the MS dash files on the shadowC are the ones used in UnleashX

if the C:\ is zero bytes you will need to format it (the shadowC) first

if it boots fine (using power or eject) then don't mess with the real C
