  1. Sounds good to me! Did you power off and on before running XB Partitioner to check for the ER on the final time before copying all your stuff on again?
  2. yep, same problem I had the first time I did it years ago, you need to format your hard drive twice in XP Partitioner 1.3, the first time make the size a bit smaller than the available space on both partitions, then power off and on the Xbox and format it again this time to the full size and bingo you're off. Problem has been around since the start of time. Also make sure you've got 64kb cluster size. At the moment if you go into XB Partitioner as sweetdarkdestiny said, you'll have ER on the partitions.
  3. Yes, the HDD was unlocked, I'm not a fan of locking hard drives as I see no point now XBox live is dead. I'd rather the drive unlocked so if the Xbox dies I can transplant it into another Xbox easily as many hours of work goes into getting my Xbox drives how I like them with all the stuff on them. All my problems are solved now by making the chip be on all the time.
  4. This conductive shielding paint works too, I knew a guy that flashed a crazy amount of xboxs using it years ago, one bottle of it lasted him forever https://www.guitaraust.com.au/body/electronics/shielding-paint.html
  5. Can you ftp the stock dash over to C, it might be missing some files. You're very close now, happy to see you've almost got it done.
  6. Also, you are using an 80 wire IDE cable aren't you? I've had some weird problems in the past like this when using the standard cable. As soon as the 80 wire cable goes on things come to life.
  7. awesome news, I'll put a 3tb in my next Xbox to get that little bit of extra space as my Xbox's are full already so I could use the extra space.
  8. I'm no expert but until the smarter people appear I've had an error 16 before and it was similar to your situation, it means the date/time is messed up and you have no dashboard installed I believe and is normal after doing what you've done. That'd be because you just removed the clock capacitor and put in a new hard drive. When it happened to me all I had to do was boot off a installer DVD with the new blank hard drive in there and it installed everything and worked fine. Are you sure your DVD drive isn't having trouble reading the DVD, that would make sense in this situation, especially seeing after you left it for a bit and tried again suddenly you were able to boot off the DVD. Perhaps it just needs a few attempts to read the disk before timing out and trying to load the dash off the hdd. They're super fussy with DVD's and burn speeds.
  9. All good, fixed it with port 123
  10. You've all be great in helping me get my two Xbox's to be awesome, I've got them both to a point I consider them perfect, my last little gripe is the time, they boot up thinking it's 2007. I've noticed the Xbox has a time server function where it can automatically connect to internet time servers and update the time with UnleashX and also XBMC, however every time server address I put in there doesn't work, even though the time servers do work on windows. Is there a time server anyone has found that actually works on the Xbox? I remember years ago I used to use this function and it used to work fine. If I can sort this out it's the last peace of the puzzle to Xbox perfection for me.
  11. Ok, so I rolled back the firmware version this morning, here is the 2.3.1 firmware on my 1.6 crystal Xbox. and now I've flashed back to 2.3.0 and this is my screen now Perfect!
  12. Yes exactly like that first image. I'm going to flash back to 2.3.0 today. I'm noticing on that thread they're all going back to 2.2.1 to fix the problem, mine was on 2.3.0 before I updated to 2.3.1 and 2.3.0 was working fine. Why is it that everyone is going back to 2.2.1 do you think? Should I do that too or put 2.3.0 back on it?
  13. Interestingly my real Xenium was on XOS 2.3.0 and the eject button press to get to the Xenium OS was a perfectly nice clear picture using my XBOX on a HDMI adapter, then, I decided I'd upgrade it to the latest version 2.3.1 using the "recovery" method from the Xenium OS with the recovery file on E:, this all went well except after doing so now my Xenium OS has lines through it and washed out, still works obviously just not as nice as it was to view on 2.3.0. I'm considering flashing it back to 2.3.0 if I can find a copy of the recovery file to do so as there doesn't seem to be many benefits to 2.3.1 anyway and at least 2.3.0 displays properly. Sorry not really adding much to your problem and questions here, but might go some way to explaining why your Xenium OS gets lines all through it. I just read the above posts properly and it's already been mentioned the Xenium OS needs downgraded to make it clear and line free. Whoops.
  14. Thanks, everyone's been great help, now my Xbox is great, the MS Dash works again after FTPing over the dash files,my 2TB drive is working well and filled up with stuff already, I can use the button combo to reboot from anything and it goes back to UnleashX and I've got it flashed with a 480P M8 bios so my HDTV works well off the HDMI adapter, no issues there at all, everything is great. I just have to tackle that capacitor, hopefully all goes well and I don't destroy the XBox I think shipping on the capacitors will be a month or two by the looks of it. At least it works fine without doing it, I haven't found any issue it's causing so far.
  15. Thanks so much Dave, I did as you said and now the Xbox boots with a normal press of the power button, even pressing the eject button will fire it up now. It's acting completely normal. Now all I need to do is sort out the bad capacitor and it's all good to go. That's even scarier than doing the wires though
