I just purchased a softmodded xbox after my xbox's hard drive crashed. Well, that wasn't the only problem with it, so I decided to replace it.
So now I have the softmodded xbox together with the original hard drive.
I'm quite afraid that a harddisk crash will occur once more. So can I replace the hard disk with the original 8Gb one?
You can replace the HD with any disk. It has to be prepped and locked with the softmodded Xbox's eeprom.
How can I make a backup of the hard disk I have now?
FTP the C and E drives to the PC. Make sure you get the eeprom.bin. If not run a back up command.
And finally, my xbox says it's running at about 45°C (it's quite hot in my room), is this normal?
Without looking it up, it seems OK.
Purchasing a new, larger HD, should be safe for years.
