by flashing my TSOP (easier than it sounds) i got my 2 TB SATA running. You can read thru the thread to see all the methods i tried and what ended up working for me. Stick with it, you'll get thru it. As was mentioned, it's either the adapter, or your method of installing that is the hold up.
P.S. HeXEn is not your answer here. Mine would hang when it came to formatting the X drive too. Left it on for 3 days and still formatting... flash your TSOP, install your dash files, and then use AID Deluxe (grab it here: http://www.aideluxe.com/index.php?title=Au...staller_Deluxe)
using it's one click install for upgrading larger HDD's, then be sure to use xbpartitioner 1.0 to partition your drives, then again with xbpartioner 1.1 to correctly format everything, especially the F drive. if you don't do it with both, you could and most likely will lose any data you xferred to your F drive after booting the box up. It's been a while since i've had to think about the mod, but if you need any help, don't hesitate to ask.
