Hey everyone i bought a xbox off ebay today and im going to softmod it when it comes but it already has xbox media center installed how will i uninstall this so i can install unleshx as i have already downloaded Krayzie Ndure Installer v1.1's pack as it sounds like it has no problems and how will i install a larger HDD do i move all files from some HDD to another thanks for any help guys.

QUOTE
Option two
Create the new larger HD to factory then install the Ndure softmod but you'll need the contents from a pre/un-modded Drive C: (If you don't have this check around you should be able to find one somewhere) You follow the same instructions as outlined below and perform the Ndure softmod after the new larger HD is installed!

i have read how to install a bigger HDD but how do i get the contents of a pre/un-modded xbox HDD ?
this is the guide im going to use happy.gif

if the box is already softmoded get a copy of HeXEn, it has the ability to update the softmod, install unleashX and install a new HDD. google "HeXEn (heimdall's xbox engineering disc)" i suggest the 2nd link.

Thank you but will i still need to move the game saves or downloading this and burning it to a disc it should run it cuz the xbox is soft modded right plus i have searched on the net all i can find is torrents and no one is seeding them so do you have this or do you know a direct download of it thanks heaps man you have really helped.

even if i did know a direct link, which i dont, i would not be able to post it. its against the rules. im not sure what the rules are about directing you to a spacific site espeacialy torrent sites, but if you go to the 2nd link you find when googling it. it will work.

You're welcome. smile.gif HeXEn isn't a softmod, but among other things it installs a Krayzie 1.1.1 or Kingroach NDURE 3.1 softmod. It also implements lxhdm to do softmod hard drive upgrades.

put HeXEn in it and let it boot.(could take close to a minute for it to boot, and it will turn the LED on the front RED, dont panic.)
choose softmod tools and find LXHDM softmod disk upgrade. read the instructions carefully and follow them. you will need an extra power source so you can run both HDDs at the same time.
once you have finished reboot HeXEn and select install applications. this will among other things install DVD2XBOX. whith this application you can put a game in you DVD drive and it will rip it to your hard drive. if need be, edit the .INI file to point to a directory in which you want your games to be riped to.
its that easy

i do not recomend using the file explorer to rip games as many games have copy protection on them and DVD2XBOX takes measures to nullify that. using the file explorer would not do this and you would probably end up with more than a few games that are not playable.

i do not know about you TV question. i do not think that it works like that. but im sure someone else could answer for sure.

The new HDD has to be prepared in a spacific way before it wil work in the xbox. HeXEn is the tool you need to do that. It will prepare the new HDD and softmod it again, then it can also install a new dashboard and all the apps you will need.
Once you have that done find a program called "flashFXP" and install it to your computer. This program will allow you to transfer files to your xbox via the ethernet wire port on the back of the xbox.
if your going to be puting a TB in it you need to do some reading. HeXEn will prep it right but in order to get all the space you will need to use XBpartitioner. There is a search fuction at the top right hand side of this page. Search "1TB HDD upgrade" and read whatever you can find. There is far to much information for any of us to retype here. Reaserch, learn and then if you get hung up at any one point, come back here and we will help. But for the most part any question you could think to ask has already been asked. Use the search function first, then come back here if you cant find your answers.
