Hey, I have a 1.6 xbox with a softmod. Sad no hacked bios.
I've once accomplished to add a 80GB IDE to my xbox using the xbhdm 2.2 usb.
I remember that I used a tutorial and the final result was unleashX+ndure.
So I saved my pendrive for future uses.
Since I couldn't find the tutorial I used back in the day I tried to do it using my memory.
Booted Slax and activated xboxhdm stage 2. Populated the E and F drives.
Choosed to lock drive inside linux and now it won't work on my xbox not even on my pc.
I get input/output errors or linux gives me no response from the drive.
I was trying with my first SATA HD. To get it to be set at /dev/hda I've used a sata-ide adaptor.
If I let it to be sata connected to my motherboard I would only get /dev/sda1.
So I'm lost. I will not try this kind of HD preparation with bigger HD. I've used an old 160GB HD before attempting it at a 2TB one.
I know I could used the xbox auto hack DVD but my drive is dead
