I have a brand new Maxtor 250 GB HDD I am ready to format and install. Done plenty of these but noticed in the past that on some Xbox's with these large drives there are frag issues eventually and get the dreaded error messages at power up. These were 200 and 250 GB HDD with single F partitions. I even zeroed them out when re-imaging and sometimes they end up doing the same thing. This time I will make a F and G partition with 4981.67 bios on X2 chip.
I read in this
tut it is recommened to zero out any drive larger than 137 GB because of LBA48 support.
Should I zero out and will it make a difference before I proceed with my install?
