Problem Using Only F On 67 Bios

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I have a question. Can i use only F partition on a 67 Bios? I am asking this because i am using ind-5004 bios and it was fine as far as i had F and G. Recently i decided to make just 1 F partition. I loaded xbpartitioner 1.1 and create a single 290 GB partition for F(it was 120 F and 170 G before) and after that i started loading stuff in it. The problem is that after the free space went to 32-35 GB(dont remember excactly)no new files would be writen on the F partition. The other partitions would get files normally. If i delete something on the F,then it would accept files again until it reaches the free space limit.... Am i doing anything wrong or is the bios supposed to work only with G too?

Always use a BIOS that supports F & G regardless of what you are doing now.  (You might choose to upgrade to a larger HDD in the future.)  Like @Alaziel said, simply use XBpartitioner 1.3 to setup the partition for F with nothing on G.

XBpartitioner 1.3 is all you need.  More advanced.  Get rid of all older versions.

I downloaded 1.3 but when i launch it,it says 1.2 at the top of the screen

I finally reformated the hdd with the 1.3 version but still the same. When i reach 32Gb free,nothing more can be put in F partition

Did you cycle through the partition setups by pressing the A button?

I first made ALL of the partitions(XYZCEF) 0 bytes,so the app will format all of them,then i did cycle with A button until all space goes to F and then it reformated the HDD but still no luck. I quess its something with the bios? Maybe 5003 is better at this point?

What's the main screen of XBpartitioner v1.3 look like?  post a pic showing your Xbox's  HDD settings.

What is the size of the F drive?  What cluster size is being used?

Its excactly like the one you posted. The top partitions are the same and F drive gets 290GB and formats with 32K cluster size

This is what you wanted though, right?  So, when you set it to that, write the table and then reboot, what is the outcome now?

So after that i start filling the F drive with games emulators etc,but when the free space drops to 30-32GB,no more filles can be copied into that drive. Others drives can be filled to maximum,but this one cant. Tried that on 2 xboxes with same Bios and the same problem occurs,so i assume that its a bios problem

Can you take a photo of XBpartitioner 1.3 immediately after you launch the app?  Ensure that the focus is moved off the F drive so that we can fully see the what the F partition is indicating.

You have to have a partition table on the HDD and the BIOS must have LBA48 patch v3 installed.

The standard configuration for an LBA48 .67 BIOS is partition 6 (F) up to 137GB and partition 7 (G) takes the rest. Without using XBPartitioner v1.3 to write a partition table the the hard drive, a .67 BIOS will only have F of ~120.5GB's and G the remainder no matter how you have the drive setup.  The LBA48 patched, .67, BIOS has fixed values set for the drive/partition starting locations when no partition table present.  If the table is present, the BIOS overrides the fixed .67 configuration values with those values read from the partition table.

Move the focus off of the partition 6 (F) line and take another photo please.  The v16 might have something to do with rev 1.6 compatibility.

OK...  Now we can see the problem.  Go back up to that row.  Cycle A button until it reads the same details for that partition.  Press Start button.  Once complete, press White button until it says just Format at the top.  Press Start button.  Press White button until it says just Write Table.  Press Start button.  Then, press Back button to exit.  Reboot.  Go back into XBpartitioner 1.3 and keep doing this until it no longer says ER.

Even if the xbpartitioner formats the F partition with ER clusters,wouldnt the AID format menu correct it?because after i made the partitions with xbpartitioner,i run auto installer deluxe 4.53,format the whole HDD within its format menu and finally started filling the HDD

      Guys, I need some feedback from some veterans out there.
      I have my first original Xbox, and I modded it, etc. But I also have a few original games that came with my Xbox etc. one of them is the first Splinter Cell.
       
      The problem is simple, for doing anything in the game I have to press "SUPER" hard on the buttons! (for the action to be performed) Now I know what you'll tell me, buy a new Xbox controller. I just got an original mint condition controller from Japan. All other games I've played don't have this problem, on the opposite I hardly touch the button and the action is performed! (in every other game) The controller is in mint condition and it's original Xbox brand!
       
      Is this how the game was coded? I have the platinum hits version of Splinter Cell by the way.
       
      Thank you all guys, you are a great community from what I have seen, my regards

      Hello guys,
       
      I am from south america, I live near the end of the world! And it is my first time with an XBOX 😍 (sounds a bit gay).
       
      Thing is, I am suffering with my new original Xbox. It came with two controllers, but, both are completely dead, I opened them, and they are unfixable. No screws on the console, I bought them all, hard drive was not working, I bought a new IDE cable, now is working.
      The DVD drive was not opening, I fixed it with a needle.
      AND the only problem I have left with no solution is the power supply, it is 110v, 1.6b, made in 2005. I need a 220v!
       
      It has been quite a headache, I got myself a power down convertor, it works, but it sounds like a nuclear plant! "Not good" (Trump voice)
       
      So dear guys if you have any deals, or any seller of 220v PSU for the Xbox, be sure to let me know!
      My most thankful cheers to you all! Cannot wait to play Halo 2 online using Xlink kai with all of you My Sony Wega is ready hehehhhe

      Hello, i recently downloaded a pack with a list of hdd ready games for xbox. So far they have all worked, but for some reason when i try to play Conker, it sends me a text box in spanish that reads '' The disc might be corrupted or damaged'' and i can't get it to boot. Any suggestions? I already deleted save data and cache to no avail.
