Cloning Hard Drive Via Chimp

Recommended Posts

So I am very new to the xbox modding scene and I bought all the stuff that is required to softmod my v1.6 xbox and I have been pretty successful thus far but I have ran into a brick wall. I bought a 250gb hard drive that will replace the previous hard drive and I and going through all the instructions on how to clone via chimp. Well I open up my chimp and it says it cannot lock my hard drive I have no idea if I can fix this or not and I havent been able to find anything online that has helped me with this. It also doesnt help that I really dont understand how alot of this works I am just following instructions if someone could please help me with this I would be greatly appreciated I can provide any information that you need.

So I do happen to have a Maxtor Quickview 250gig IDE HDD.... Is there no way to get it to work without spending a whole lot of money? and if not can someone suggest me a cheap hard drive that is compatible that is pretty cheap?

Nope, unfortunately that HDD can't be locked. Here's the HDD compatability list (Please login or register to see this link. ), where you can check what HDD models can and can not be locked. BTW, IDE HDDs aren't expensive, they are obsolete now, and quite cheap.

You can use that HDD if you install a modchip; however, from what I understand about their firmware if bad sectors start appearing they are just ignored instead of being remapped. Thus, not recommended to use a QuickView HDD but it can be.

The modified BIOS booting from a modchip does not require the HDD to be locked.  Aladdin XT plus 2 on eBay for 3 to 5 USD.

      Hello, I've just upgraded my hard drive. Added a 80-wire 40 pin and with a pata to sata adapter.
      It cloned just fine. I selected selective partition (C,e,f and g) as it stated G would take the rest of the space. It's a 500Gb hard drive.
      But.. It says partition G is 0Gb available.. And F is at 120Gb. But XBpartitioner 1.3 sees G at around 300Gb. So why isn't it available for me to use? 
      But really F can take it all correct? So no need for G..?
       
      Okay, I disabled partition G and filled partition F with all it can have(it said 400Gb ish) and I wrote that to the disk with XBpartitioner 1.3. And now it says it only has 246Gb... Where did the rest go... I'm lost  
       
      UPDATE:
      okay... UnleashX shows me under storage menu that is "sees" 469Gb ish.. But only available 246Gb... But the partition is empty???
       
      Anyone got a clue?

      Hi, guys. I have a problem. I'd like to admit a 1 tb hard drive into an xbox 1.6 with modchip AladdinXT. Unfortunately, by inserting the hard disk with the dvd of rocky5 or Wizard, the hdd is not recognized. I tried in my xbox 1.0 with the same chip, and it is recognized. Partitioning is everything, it is recognized. I put it back in the xbox 1.6 but it is not recognized. If I remember correctly, it's an eeprom problem. Can you help me?
