I would like to put a 40 GB-HDD in my Xbox.
At the moment my Xbox is softmodded (Hot Swap, Ndure 3.1/KingRoach) with UnleashX as standard dashboard.
Because i bought the Xbox from another person, i don't know what exactly that person has done to the files on the HDD (maybe he deleted files or whatever, i just don't know).
So i just don't want to copy the eeprom.bin and the C and E folders to my pc to make a new HDD with Xboxhdm (new hdd from scratch), instead i would like to have a completely fresh/clean installed HDD with untouched/original files. Of course i would like to softmod it again I also would like to keep the original MS dashboard (so i can dual boot: starting the Xbox with the powerbutton boots up UnleashX and starting the Xbox with the eject-button boots up the original MS dashboard).
So how can i do that? I still want to softmod my Xbox with the Ndure-method, not with that Splinter Cell-thing!
Is this way correct (please correct me if i'm wrong)? :
Using Xboxhdm to make a "new hdd from scratch" (but without copying the files from C & E, instead copying the MS dashbord-files from the Slayers cd to folder C and leaving folder E empty). Also copying the eeprom.bin to the eeprom-folder of course.
After that i generate the linux-iso and burn it.
Then i connect the new 40 gb-hdd to my pc and make a new hdd with xboxhdm.
After the new hdd is finished, i just softmod that hdd with the same procedure i softmodded the original Xbox-hdd (Xboxhdm/Ndure 3.1 KingRoach). (but this time i don't have to hotswap of course, because the hdd is unlocked already) Finally i lock the hdd with Xboxhdm.
When everything is done i just put the new hdd into my Xbox and then (hopefully ) it boots the same way it does right now with the old hdd (Start-button = UnleashX / Eject-Button = MS Dashboard).
Is this correct, do you think it will work this way?
