Cloning-Adding the XBox Game Collection Origins Pack

Recommended Posts

Is there a link to the installation process of the Origins game pack that has been going around which is a 1.7TB HDD image?

all I am seeing is  that you need a program to clone the HDD But no other information beyond that. What do I actually do with it? How would I clone it to my Xbox HDD when I have smaller size partitions, does the program just split it? 

The Origins Game pack  I am referring to is the ArcadePunks HDD image file that many people are using.

thanks!

I'm not completely sure how that would work. I just messaged them via facebook for some sort of documentation on how the image is 'cloned'. I will post the response here when and if they respond.

thank you!! I would really appreciate it. I’m amazed that so much work went into creating it and yet, there isn’t much information on the actual cloning process.

HDDGuru's Please login or register to see this link. should be able to write the image to a NEW EMPTY  hard drive.  However to do so, the hard drive has to be as large or larger than the image file - in this case a 2TB hard drive is needed. The partitions will be the same size as the original drive the image was made from. 

The image is a sector-by-sector copy of the original hard drive it came from and when restored to another hard drive, you will have only the image's data present.  It does not get added to files already present on your HDD.  It will overwrite your entire HDD.  Use a new EMPTY hard drive - I suggest using a WD Blue 2TB SATA drive, Marvell 88SA8052-based IDE-to-SATA adapter and an 80-wire 40-pin 24" long high-speed IDE cable.

Kaosengineer - A few questions...

firstly, I am softmodded. Does that play a factor?  My partitions  sizes were limited to 927GB. 

is there any tutorial out there outlining how to prepare  or connect the harddrive to your pc?

i already have the HDD raw copy program, the origins HDD image file  and a 3TB HDD. I just can’t figure out how to partition it. 

I also swapped my idee HDD and back up my eprom, and installed the 3TB HDD I’m planning on using.  Do I need to unlock my HDD before formatting?

I really appreciate your help... I really would like the origins set up, and it’d really

mean a lot to me to accomplish it. Thank you for any help you might be able to send me.

Softmodded consoles require the HDD to be locked using the eeprom.bin's HDDKey to generate the locking password.

I don't think the Xbox Origins Pack image was made from a softmodded console (I do not have the space to download and look at the files in the image to verify this statement.)  You will have to write the image to the new drive with the HDD Raw Copy Tool, run XboxHDM23USB beta 2 or 3 to lock the hard drive after copying your eeprom.bin file to the folder that contains its startup batch file, xboxhd.bat. Once locked, exit XboxHDM23USB Beta 2 or 3, disconnect the HDD from the USB-to-HDD adapter and re-install the hard drive in the Xbox.  Boot the console, I believe it will start MS dashboard as if it is not softmodded. Next, if required, softmod the console.  The Softmodding process only affects the content of the C drive. Other than you adding the two (2) softmod game saves to the E:\UDATA folder to run it.  Everything on E, F and G remain untouched as far as their current content goes.

Image restoration with HDD Raw Copy Tool will overwrite all the data already written to a hard drive.  You only want to restore the disc image to a new HDD or one you are okay losing all files already stored to it.

The image was from a 2TB HDD so your 3TB HDD will have the exact same size partitions as available on a 2TB HDD (F and G 927.78GBs). None of the extra space available on it will be usable. LBA48 allows up to 2.2TBs to be formatted less the stock 8GBs with 64KB cluster allocation for partitions 6 and 7.  The Xbox extended partitions cannot be expanded to gain the additional formatted ~200GB's of space as if you formatted a new 3TB HDD with XBPartitioner v1.3.

For image restoration to a SATA drive, the hard drive can be directly connected to one of your PC's SATA ports.

To lock the HDD after the Origins Pack image is restored, XboxHDM23USB Beta 2 or 3 as supplied in the download archive requires the HDD to be connected to the PC with a USB-to-HDD interface adapter.

You don't have to partition it.  The image is a sector-by-sector copy of the Xbox hard drive it was made from.  Once the image is restored to a new hard drive, install it in an Xbox. The drive is prepped and partitioned ready to use in an Xbox.  

If you are softmodded, the hard drive will have to be locked.  If you have a modchip installed or TSOP reflashed with a hacked BIOS, you do not have to lock the new HDD to use it.

This looks interesting, i might have to dl this and add it to my 3rd box. Also this may inspire me to make a dump of my 2tb that has the complete Xbox game collection on it....


Would anyone be interested in that?

I just finished the download, took about 9 days, and about 2 days to clone the image to a new 2tb HDD. I’ve heard some people report issues with the image so we shall see once I get the drive in my Xbox to see how well it works. Pretty straight forward so far.

What kinda internet are you running where you can just casually pull 1.7Tb in 9 days? Very jelly. With my data cap I could barely do it in 9 months!

Just an 80mbps high speed connection Using a expressvpn. I’m not in a data cap so I was able to continuously run the download

First, select the Source FILE then click the Continue >>> button.

Next, select the Target device/drive not the FILE and click the Continue >>> button. 

Next, click Start to copy the SOURCE File to the TARGET drive.

Note: Make sure the TARGET drive is the Xbox drive not your computer's OS drive.  All data will be wiped out of the TARGET device - overwritten with the SOURCE file content.

What file type is the Origins download?

Is it a dot ZIP or RAR? You would need to extract it first.

I would think it's just a dot BIN file, not compressed.

it's a imgc image file i deleted it i'm trying to download it again i tried to transfer it 3 times and every time it got to 23% and stopped and was saying Compressed source file is corrupted, aborting

I see now, HDD Raw Copy Tool writes a hard drive image to either a dot img (Raw image) or imgc (Compressed image) file.

A large file to download again.  Especially if it is corrupt again. If so, it must be that way from the source. :(

I've been trying to upload the origins file onto my 2tb hdd, everything goes well but when I go to turn on the Xbox I get an error 13.. 

How big is the origins file, mine is only 1.56tb , is that correct or am I missing some more data on the file?

Thank you in advance!

You cannot just upload the origins file to your xbox. You need to download this software Please login or register to see this link.  and then using a fresh BLANK hard drive, use the software to copy the .imgc file to the blank hard drive. If you have a hard modded xbox you can then mount the hard drive in your xbox and boot up. If you have a softmod then you will need to lock the hard drive using xboxhdm23usb and a backup eeprom.bin file from your xbox.

 

The file you have downloaded is a hdd image file, similar to how an ISO is an image of a cd/dvd.

      This is going to start out as just being copied directly over  from my thread on BitBuilt about the project.
      Please login or register to see this link.

      The xbox has some mildly odd power requirements. It uses the same 20 pin Molex MiniFit Jr connector that an ATX PSU output, however the pinout is completely different.

      As it stands, the typical solution is to use a PicoPSU, a small ATX PSU, a modify it to work with the original xbox.  PicoPSUs can be had for around $15, the power supplies for them can be had for around $10.  It's a very inexpensive solution.  Traditionally when this is done, the Power OK and Power On lines are ignored, the PSU is set to always on, and the wires are run all catywumpus to get to where they need to go.  While this solution works, it's definitely a hack, and I believe we can do better.
       
      So what are the xbox's actual power requirements?
      While I haven't actually cut up a power supply and tried to get the xbox to full load while measuring the current draw, I have a V1.1 PSU here that handily has the power requirements right on the label.
      Max Output Power: 96W
      DC Output:
      +5V -- 13.2A
      +3.3V -- 4.8A
      +12V --1.2A
      +3VSB -- 0.045A
      I hope it's safe to assume that further revisions of the xbox had similar or lower power draw.  Regardless, this seems like a good starting point.
       
      So, how do I plan to accomplish this?
      With 4x LM2678 Regulators from Texas Instruments.
      Please login or register to see this link.
      Why 4 regulators for 3 voltages?
      The LM2678 is a 5A regulator. I need 13.2A on the 5V line.  Having looked at the specs for the PicoPSUs that seem to work just fine, they're rated for 8A on the 5V line. This leads me to believe that 10A should suffice, so I'll need two regulators for 5V.
      I'll also need a 12V regulator, as I plan to run this off of an easily obtainable laptop power supply rather than needing to source an 8A 12V supply.
      I will also be designing a smaller footprint alternative that runs off of 12v for when space is of the highest concern.  I'll likely also break down the xbox's power requirements even further at some point to see if I can't design a PSU that allows for aggressive trimming, but that's much further down the road.
      --------------------------------------------

      I've designed the first iteration of the 24v board, it's 60*32mm. Now that it's done, I don't like it for a variety of reasons. I'm going to try again, putting the low profile components on the backside of the board and the tall components on the topside of it. Maybe I'll be able to squish it down a bit more in the process.
      --------------------------------------------

      There, that's a little better.
      27.5*49.25 mm
      --------------------------------------------
      Oh, hey, I worked on this a bit.
      I ditched the 12v regulator and changed it to 12v in. I also had to source different inductors, which are sadly larger, so the whole board got a couple of mm wider in the process.

      26.5mm*57.2mm

      I think I'm gonna actually order this one, and see if it works.
      --------------------------------------------
      I've since looked at the most recent revision and noticed a couple of flaws in it. I've repaired those flaws, and I'm gonna sleep on it again, look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow, and probably order it.

      Hi Guys
      I'm getting this issue with my Enter the Matrix game(NTSC). I am using an NTSC-J 1.6 Xbox with an aladin mod chip running M8plus (EvoX).
      I tried ripping Enter the Matrix to the console and when I play it, I get a black screen with a couple green dots. I then tried to run it straight from the Disc and get the exact same error. I then put the game in my 1.4 softmodded pal xbox and the game loads just fine.
      Does anyone know why this is? I have attached an image of the blank screen with dots.
