How was the xbox modded? Did it have a chip or softmod?
It has a mod chip in it. It is an xecuter2 ( not sure what version to be exact).

you should be able to just get a xbox boot disk and just get another hdd in there and use the boot disk to set up everything. Slayers or Auto-Installers Deluxe (AID) will work
Well I have an issue there I can't seem to find any media to be able to boot from. I have tried everything and have not been able to find a single good iso that will work. My xbox has the Thompson drive in it and I have tried using xiso (which seems to give me trouble under win-XP) to build a boot image (using dvd-r dvd+r cwrw) and I can't seem to get it to boot. I even have borrowed a buddies bootable disk he used and can't get it to work.

Ok I just was under the impression that I need to have to original xbox hdd files there for the system to boot and run, is that not the case?
This is partially true. If your new HD has never been installed into an xbox previously, your HD will not have a Fatx partition. So, If you have any issues with Xplorer360 complaining of "No Fatx drive present" and seeing as how your Thompson drive is not reading your boot discs, you will need to build an xboxhdm disk to at least get a Fatx partition table onto the new HD, since Xplorer360 does not have the capability. Once formatted with xboxhdm, you will be able to complete the drive set-up using Xplorer360.
