OK it appears my LBA48 isnt setup right on the Bios I used. So far I tried using XBTool but say Unsupported
Kernel when i load the Bios i used in it. So Im looking for another way to Edit bios or just use different one.
I Do Have two setup the Same way But they are both different ver 1.3 and 1.5 [I think] but they both have different stuff on them. Also makes Me wonder why if i swap the HDs they not just work. I get the same problem I have Now. where Xbox boots to Dash music plays but all videos and Emulators Dont show up??
It Looks Like My C,D,E partitions are fine just F, and G . G say err :3 F looks blank. but isnt
Thanks To anyone who takes minute to Help me!
[ Didnt want anyone thinking I signed up on forums then posted question. I Have been memvber here for Years with different Name. But never knew how to fix my troube]

From more reading seems Imposible for Me. But
Heres How my HD is layed Out
Partitions C,D,E,F,G,X,Y,Z X,Y,Z are all 750Mbs And F and G were Big not sure what they were So Im now wondering If even Possible to Make Bios to HD If thats what it is I need to Do? Thanks ANyone

is the DuoX2 using the same BIOS as the Aladdin chip you had before?
If it's a different BIOS, that might be your problem. Also make sure your F & G drives are enabled in your BIOS.

Sadly I can only Guess AS to what Bios I Had on the Aladen, [By guessing i can Hope it had the same as my Other xbox i made 3 years ago, cause I no longer Have the Aladen]
My Other working Xbox Not sure But i found this INFO Kernel Version 1.0.5838.1 [Im not sure where to Look]
Looks Like I Put on DUO X2 Kernel 1.00.5035.01
So i should Look For Same Kernel? Bios? as my Other Aladen. [i think tho if i put Hd in my other xbox it dont show stuff right either but [i'll try soon to see.]
I dont know how to Enable F and G in Bios on setting in Avalaunch says their Enabled in that?
Thanks For the Help and ANy more
Guess Im not sure if Im suppost to use Bios as downloaded Or edit them with LBA48 editor some how?

Sounds like you might be using X2_5035 BIOS on the DuoX2 so I'm about 99% positive you're not using the same BIOS as the one that was on the Aladdin chip. There were numerous versions of the Aladdin as well as clones, but I don't recall any of them having a 512K BIOS (that's what the X2_5035 BIOS size is).
You likely won't recover your files unless you somehow switch back to the BIOS you originally used.
You can always reformat your partitions, then re-rip all the games/files back onto the hard drive, but it'll probably take you some time.

Thanks, So if i figure out and find same Bio and Make it 256k to 512k [If possible] would i still Have a chance? I guess im going to open both now try HD in my other xbox, then at least i could FTP some stuff to PC. but if i recall they didnt let me swap drives. [So mybe they werent same Bios, ones 1.3 other is 1.6 i guess]
I guess I would allmost rather then loose every thing, order Aladen chip. and try few Bios. I do still Have most the game sbut lots are borrowed out to friends reatives I'd probibly obly be able to Get back half. but mainly I had lots movies I wanted Bad.
As far as the LBA48 thing is htat something I need to learn how to Edit. or If my HD i think was F so big G the rests or something.

If you're using the 5035, the first thing you'll see when you turn on the console is a message saying "Live Config Loading" (or something like that).
Whatever BIOS you had before would've altered the boot sequence in a different way. For example, the M8 sticks a purple EvoX shield in the corner.
Can you remember anything like that?
Mar 14 2008, 06:16 AM
OK Thanks For HElping Both YOU. I got My Neffews xbox with Aladen Mod chip put my HD in and it works So i can Save Backups/Movies Great, Now One more thing
So My Xbox with DUO X2 I went Bought New 500GB westen Digital Hd. Im trying to Put Dash Etc, mY pROBLEM iS I uSE REAL oLD sLAYERS, then in Media center I copy dash Etc over from Good Xbox.
But Seems Duo X2 or I Formatted HD and It only Has C,D,E,F X,Y,Z G is Missing when I turn G on in temp Dash says Err: 3 and All the Size Of HD looks to Be in F 468GB I Guess I can be fine with that But would Like to Figure out How to Have It like I use to make them with G Having most or the Same as F.
Question, Do i just use a Partition Program. Or Do I have to Mod Bios or Use different Bios i think? LBA48 Thing?? Flash chips 2nd Bank with Modded Bios ??
I understand thier is Lot info On here about this I will read now lots to. But if anyone cares to Help in mean time Great. Thanks.

You'll need to use XBPartitioner to format the drive.
All partitions larger then 256gb need to be (re)formatted with 32kb clusters (only XBPartitioner can do this), and likewise XBP is the only app that lets you create custom sized partitions (eg. so you can split the space evenly between F and G).
Mar 14 2008, 06:40 AM
Thanks, Looking for It now, I Guess From what i remeber I thought last time i made my other xbox [was 3 years ago] I did every thing with a disk. Maybe I got i on the disk. Or dose XBPartitioner Have to be ran from Xbox? Thanks, Im going to try Now and look for program.[ Thanks to your Help] would it be Ok to leave all o nF or would it not let me use some of the Space over 250 gb?? Thanks Agin

If you try to put more then 256gb onto a partition that hasn't been formatted with 32kb clusters, your file index gets corrupted (and you stand to lose a lot of data).
XBPartitioner can be run from disc, but I'm not aware of any auto-installer disc that makes use of it. You can copy it to the X-Box HDD and run it from there if you like.
Mar 14 2008, 07:31 PM
Auto Installer Deluxe has XBpartitioner on the disc.
You can either install it as an app or run it directly from disc (it's under the tools menu).
Use it to format your G drive & partition it to 32k clusters.
Also make sure to use Configmagic (also found on Auto Installer Deluxe) to lock lock/unlock your hard drive.
Doing so will set a master password which will come in handy in case your xbox ever dies. If your box dies, the master password can unlock the hard drive so you can use it again on another xbox or PC.

Thanks, For Help, Sadly I Guess Since The whole 500Gb showed Up 380Gb F I went and filed it Up with Stuff . Now i hope it isnt all corrupt? How can I tell If its formmatted with formatted with 32kb clusters. More or less if I didnt do it Its Not? I use old slayers 2.6 to Do the Partiting. Any Idea If that woulda 32kb Clustered it.
By the soulds of it I need to Delete all and start over. Or if it seams to be working would I be OK? or NO
Far as Locking I leave my HDs unlocked. the whole time thier in my xbox. IS thier advantage to Locking it, or do i have to if its on line?
Mar 15 2008, 12:27 AM
ThANKS for the Help, both Ya YES sadly I jumped the Gun, Looks Like the 250GB i load [14 hours worth] now needs Deleted. Next Time I will Read More and Lisson More. thier 160GB let that will not Take Data. And some the 250GB Is corrupt. ANyway. Old Xboxes Still Fun, Just wish they would tranzfur Movies fast and Data. Time to Look and Use XBpartitioner
