after ther upgrade i ftped my box threw recovery mode
FTP'd through recovery mode? I don't get what you mean by this, do you mean the chip is in recovery cos I don't see how thats possible.
Once you've booted to the Xenium OS with your original harddrive installed, FTP into the box and see what partitions are there. You should see C:, E:, X:, Y:, Z; if I recall correctly. If the partitions in the original drive appear as they're supposed to then i imagine there's an error in the way your drives are set up prior to running the wizard.
The new drive, should be set to slave and attached to the IDE cable where the DVD-ROM would normally go, and the original drive needs to be changed from its original setting of 'cable select' to 'master'.
Once the upgrade wizard is complete, set the new rive back to 'cable select' and attach it where the original drive was and re-attach your DVD-ROM. If you do all that exactly it should work fine.
