Lba48 250gb Hard Drive Issue

Recommended Posts

Ive just upgraded a hard drive to a 250gb from a 8gb in a chipped xbox which has xecuter2 chip installed. but after usung xbpartitioner 1.3 off the hexen disc. I set f::\ partion to use remaning free space..All seems well., even in the hexen main menu it shows that f:\ partition is 240gb. But when i restart xbox in the unleashX dash it only shows 120gb. so show i load xbpartitioner off the hard drive and it show me a error message "LBA48 Info not found!  custom partitions will not work with this bios" etc.

So now i try creating 2 partions f:\ for 120gb and g:\ 120gb. but again only f:\ shows up with 120gb.

do i need to some how update xecuter2 chip or would i be better removing the chip and tsopping the console?

I would make sure that you are on the latest X2 bios, you may need to update. It should be available in the Google Drive

At the top of XBPartitioner v1.3, the LBA48 patch version will be printed.  What version is it?

What kernel version are you running? 

Press the Y button at UnleashX's menu to display the System Info page.  Scroll down to find the Kernel Version.


The BIOS will need to be updated. 

A version compatible with your motherboard version will need to be used.  There are v1.0-1.5 and 1.6/1.6(b) versions.

The latest Xecuter BIOSes for X2 modchips are X2 5035 (512KB) or X2 4981.67 or X2 4983.67.  There are other dev team BIOS's that you can use as well.  Evolution-X's M8plus for all motherboard versions are available or iND-BiOS 5003 or 5004 for v1.0-1.5 MBs.

I don't think the X2 4974 actually has any LBA48 patch installed or can have for that matter.  You'll need to reflash your modchip with a newer BIOS that does.

X2 5035, X2 4981, X2 4983, Evox M8plus, iND-BiOS 5003 or iND-BiOS Beta (aka 5004).  Any BIOS that has a .67 and .06 version use the .67 version even if you plan to use only partition 6.

      Hi Everyone, 
      I picked up another XBOX on eBay that was really clean never been opened. It has a strange issue though, if you power on it will take about 1-2 minutes to boot to the dashboard. 
      If you power on and open the disc tray during the start-up animation it will boot straight away. 
      I opened the XBOX and the clock capacitor had leaked so that got removed and 3 more capacitors had popped so they got replaced today. The motherboard has been completely cleaned. 
      The disc drive works fine once powered up and games run no problem. 
      Anyone had this issue? Is the disc drive on its way out? 
      Thanks in advance

      I just recently ressurected my old xbox, and upgraded it to a 2tb drive. I had to upgrade the bios on the chip in order to properly have the system see all the new space. I did so by using the hexen disc. So this worked, but now if i use the Xecutor bios, it takes a little over 10 seconds for it to get to the boot animation screen. If i use evox, its a little quicker, but not by that much. Anything i can do to increase the speed? On the old xecutor bios it was instantaneous. 
      Thanks in advance!

      Working with a 1.0 console with an X3 in it and a loaded 2TB Seagate Barracuda. The drive is split 50/50 between F and G. I flashed a fresh version of BIOS 3294 and now it defaults to 137GB for F and G gets the rest. I'm not sure how to resolve this one. How can I get it to recognize the 50/50 split of F and G? I also reset the configuration to defaults.
      NVM, I found the right option - Disk Tools > New Hard Drive Upgrade > Use Saved Partition Table = Enabled. I was looking everywhere else and didn't think to check that option.
