disk /dev/hda doesn't contain a valid partition table
and it stucks there... i'm quite sure i have done all the steps in the right way... and that the xbox hd is unlocked
Same here. So I switched to another computer and it worked immediately. Sort of. Cause when I'd done a backup of C on E and selected 1 to start the 3-part update process it got stuck at part 2 with this:
Copying ndure files
cp: Read error: Input/Output error
Copying c drive backup to shadow
cp: cannot create directory 'xbox/hack/Audio' : Read-only file system
cp: cannot create directory 'xbox/hack/BiosCheck' : Read-only file system
cp: cannot create directory 'xbox/hack/NewBioses' : Read-only file system
cp: cannot create directory 'xbox/hack/Skin' : Read-only file system
cp: unable to open 'xbox/hack/evox.ini' : Read-only file system
cp: unable to open 'xbox/hack/evoxdash.xbe' : Read-only file system
cp: /CD/ndure/C/shadow/resc/*: No such file or directory
Part 3 of 3:
Done... now exiting
I figured it could not write the complete udate so I did a restore of the C Backup done previously. However, upon starting the xbox I got a service error 13. I deviated from this tutorial only in not Installing Updated Backup Script cause the link was dead and I figured, since my download of ndure 3.1 was newer than this tutorial referencing 3.0, it would have a newer script as well (had to strip the htm extension though).
Now what? How do I get this fixed? Trying softmodding/hotswapping again? I'd also like to upgrade to a 500 GB HDD in the process if possible. I'm a total Linux/Xbox newbie so please bare with me but wouldn't it be possible to extract the unlock key while in hotswap mode and write it to a blank HDD under Linux, copy over the necessary files and be done with it? Thanks for any pointers.
