I bought a xbox from a guy yesterday. It needs a new hdd because the stock hdd is corrupt. My question is: can I install a bigger hdd (80 gig) even though I dont have the stock hdd eeprom and key? Could I just create a hdd from scratch with xboxhddmaker 1.9 copy all the files from c: , e: , and eeprom key from one of my other boxes, or with cause promblems? Im worried about copying the eeporm key from another box, and installing it on a different one. Anyone have any ideas? Your thoughts would be appriciated.

if the xbox is modded with chip or tsop flash, you can just plug in the drive and make a boot disk that will let you format your drive and install the dash files (like slayers 2.6)

Is the stock drive still in the box? If so, hotswap the stock drive to your computer and either use hdd driver under windows to rebuild the drive, or xboxhdm.

Heres the thing, the box with the corrupt hdd isnt modded. Can I take the bad drive out, hook it up to a pc and use my xboxhdmaker boot disk to reformat the drive and install the c:,e:, and eeprom key from my modded box? Will copying an eeprom key from a modded drive to another unmodded xbox stock drive hurt anything? Thanks for the replies.

My experience is that using an different EEPROM locks the harddrive and makes it impossible to unlock it again so I won't recomend using it.

Ok... how about if I hook the corrupt hdd to my pc, run the xboxhddmaker OS and choose the option to fix a corrupt drive. I wont have the drives eeprom since it came out of an unmodded box, but I could use the option to generate a hdd key with hdmaker, reformat, and lock the drive back up. Do you think the drive would boot after that?

I tried the same thing and as soon as I put my new hd in the xbox it locked it and I can't use the code an different Eeprom gave me to unlock it.
Each eeprom is unique for as far as i know
I've got an 160 Gig paperweight now but luckely i have restored my eeprom with my original hd and i'm still trying to unlock it again
