i tweaked my other tutorial. this should get you done no matter what way you choose to mod.http://www.megaupload.com/?d=O31E4QDI
XBOXHDM 2.2 download
Plug the USB you are going to use into your PC and follow these steps to get it bootabale
1.Download RMPrepUSB: http://sites.google.com/site/rmprepusb/\"
3.I chose syslinux boot option then 'prepare drive' - note I selected 'no' when asked any questions during this part
4.I then choose to install grub4dos using RMPREPUSB.
5. unzip and copy everything from the XBOXHDM2.2 download onto the USB.(overwrite as needed)
6.Place your "eeprom.bin" file in the "eeprom" folder located on the root of the flash drive.
7.Populate the /hdm/C folder with the M$ Dashboard files.
8.Populate the /hdm/E folder with any chosen files (games saves etc) that you require installed.(you can optionaly add one of the gamesave exploits here.)
IF you wish to install Kingroach's Ndure 3.1, also do this.
9.Download Ndure 3.1(google it). unzip it and run the Ndure-3.1.exe
10.Checkmark the following boxes
Under Softmod & NKPatcher options
[x]Install Ndure basic
[x]Boot MSdash with eject
[x]Use NKPatcher .06 (if you have an HDD larger than 8GB or are upgrading to a larger HDD)
Under Kernel selection
[x]choose your kernel(found buy booting your XBOX and going to settings and sytstem info. let it scroll to the bottom and you will see K:1.00.XXXX.01 the XXXX being your kernel number)
[x]create XBOXHDM installer
11.Hit next and it will create a new folder called Ndure in the same directory the Ndure-3.1.EXE is in.
12.copy this new folder onto your USB in the HDM folder. there is already a folder called Ndure there, it should ask if you want to merge the 2 folders, choose yes.
10.That's it! (power off your PC and unplug your PCs HDD and DVD drive) Reboot using the USB drive and if all has gone well, you should see the (blue) boot screen. (wait to boot till you have the XBOX ready to hotswap)
BUILD THE HDD
make sure the jumper on the new HDD is set to master. use the powersupply from your xbox to give the HDD power if you need. i also suggest for you to disconnect any other hard drives or DVD drivefrom the motherboard.
1. boot your PC with the USB and wait till you see the blue boot screen.
2. plug the NEW HDD into your PC and then choose option 1. XBOXHDM2.2 & SLAX (if yoou are using this program to upgrade to a larger HDD. you should wait to plug the new XBOX HDD into your computer till after post. in my experience it is best to plug it in when the boot script pauses for the first time for about 3 seconds. this will prevent an error "the drive is frozen" later on when trying to lock the new HDD)
3.After a moment you will come to the GUI. click the black box in the lower left hand corner
4.type "xboxhd2" without the quotes and then "yes"
5.choose option 1.
6.choose option 2 Activate XBOXHDM stage 2, and type "yes" to continue
7.after a moment QEMU will open and tell you to type "xboxhd" or "xbrowser". If upgradeing to a new HDD type "xboxhd" and then choose the option to build a new xbox HDD from scratch. after it is done creating the partitions and formating them, choose option 8
if you do not wish to install Ndure 3.1, exit QEMU. in the previous box type XBOXHD2 again, then YES again, choose option 1, then choose to lock the HDD (with the eeprom you have included in the eeprom folder)
you now have large basicly retail HDD. your xbox will boot like it did from factory.(if you chose to add gamesave exploits in the E/UDATA folder, you can pop in your chosen game and mod.)
INSTALLING NDURE 3.1
to install Kingroach's Ndure 3.1. type "xbrowser" to enter the Midnight Commander.
8.on the left side of the screen navigate down to the Ndure folder and press enter. then again down to the Ndure script and press enter. it will open an install menu for Ndure
9.choose option 2. replace C with Ndure. wait for it to finish all 3 steps. this could take up to 15 minutes.
10.press F10 to exit Midnight Commander.wait for it to check the file structure and then close QEMU.
11. in the first box type XBOXHD2 then YES, choose option 1 then option 3 to lock the xbox with your eeprom. make sure it says the cammand was successful.
you can now power off your PC and the XBOX, and plug everything back together.
YOU ARE NOW MODDED AND YOU SHOULD NOW BOOT DIRECTLY TO UNLEASHX.
i also suggest that you get a copy of HeXEn (Heimdall's xbox enineering disc). this has the ability to update your mod and to install a few of the best and most need apps including XBMC and XBPartitioner, also it has the ability to change your default dashboard. you can find it by googling it.This post has been edited by spliff721: Apr 13 2011, 01:12 AM
