here's the deal.. i got x2 4981 flashed to my TSOP, Seems to be fine.. but i started haven problems with my old 300gb maxtor HDD.. for some reason the data would get corrupt of G: after it filled to a certain point, so i thought it was my drive that was messed up, so i went and bought a new HDD.. I got a 500gb this time.. it took some time to fill this one up, but the same thing happened when i filled the drive to a certain point.. i started gettin corrupt data, i think i had about 200GB of data or more on drive G: when it started, maybe about 70GB left free on it..

It only does it on drive G:, all the other drives r fine.. so its got me thinkin it might be the bios.. Should i switch to InD or something?

any help would be great

Also, after i flash the TSOP i remove the brige points
is it safe to leave them connected for future flashes?

i Just Flashed with iND 5003.67, gonna try that, and hopefully it fixes my HDD problems... i dont understand what it goin on with it, but it has to be the bios that i was usen, cause both drives had problems and i just reformatted tested with h2testw 1.4 on my pc and both drives r fine

its not a bios issue, its how the drive is formatted

you have to use xbpartitioner, it uses 32k clusters for partitions over 256gb to avoid corruption

xbp 1.1 or 1.2 (i forget which version its on) will also use 64k clusters on partitions over 512gb

That sounds about right, cause i didnt use xbp to set up my drive, i just used evox to install new drive.
ok.. so which should i use the 32k or the 64k.. and after i use xbp do i still set it up with evox?


I figured it out thanks..i done moved my files back to the 500gb HDD so i just went back to my 320GB HD and em gonna use G: so i dont need to format it with xbp, right? it only show the option to format with 16k, and thats what evox formats with if im correct..?

Yes, you only have to use XBPartitioner 1.1 or higher if either of the F/G partitions is larger than 256GB.

And yes, you can leave the TSOP points connected. Just don't leave Evox on your Xbox, so none of your friends / family is ever tempted to "see what this menu option does........" smile.gif

Unfortunately your information is old, and no longer correct, and hasn't been correct for some time.

First of all, 06 BIOSes haven't been limited to 130GB for over 5 years - the LBA48 support in all BIOSes since 2005/2006 means that much larger single F partitions can be addressed.

Second, 06/67 makes no difference if you format the drive with XBPartitioner 1.1, because it writes an on-disk partition table, and the BIOS will use that instead of its fallback hard coded partition information. 06/67 is only needed if you format the disk with Evox or xboxhdm 1.9 or its derivatives.

These two facts mean that you can use either BIOS and configure the disk to suit your needs, so long as you use XBPartitioner 1.1 to do the formatting.
