Thanks, guys! I'm at work at the moment, but I'll get back home in a few hours and give it a try. I should mention that my linux.iso was like 4gigs, which just fit on at dvd-r. It's because of a few things. The previous owner had junk on there (the e drive) like coinops2 and roms (I've backed these up for later) and then all this apple trailer stuff and who knows what else. seems kind of large. would like to start fresh, I can install all the latest/greatest emus and all that once I get the new 320gb drive working, so....
a) take out new drive
put in old drive
c) book hexen cold (look for red light)
d) ftp into xbox and copy down c drive for use in xboxhdm
e) make 2nd attempt burn with xboxhdm as before, except unlock it 1st
f) put large drive back into xbox
g) test to see if it worked, now if it does.....
and i want a cleaner install, can i put hexen back in and get it to redo some stuff, like (this is going from a youtube video i watched): "Softmod Part 2 - Using The HeXEn Disc" (have no access to heXEn and xbox here at work):
2. Softmod XBox Tools
2.2 Krayzie One-Click
2.2.7 SC Gamesave (not sure which one to pick, i do have Splinter Cell Platinum though)
Basic Install, UnleashX dash
(remove HeXEn disc and reboot)
reboot again, UnleashX should boot
put hexen disc back in and install xbmc on e
use dash tools to switch to default dash xbmc on e
reboot (knowing i can update xbmc to newer version later)
i will need xbpartioner to format f and g as I have a 320gb?
Let me know if this sounds about right. Is there way I can get rid of all the crapola that will be left on E?
