I've recently found my old xbox1 but I can't use it without a HDD. The old HDD I had used in it years ago has been used in a PC, so now now I need to format it for use in the xbox. I remember flashing a custom bios via the TSOP method (or at least that's what I think it was called) and so I had planned to just use evoX to drop in the HDD and format it. My problem is that my dvd drive no longer works, and so I don't have a way to format the HDD without using a PC.
So far I've tried using xhdprep to prepare the HDD and then tried using HD fatxbox explorer to install a dashboard and get it working in the xbox. However the PC won't doesn't see the xbox hard drive. The PC I'm using has IDE ports so I'm not using an add in card.
So yeah, is there anyway I can format the HDD using the PC, then install a dash with FTP and get everything else installed that way?
