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.

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

      i'm not well versed on how to interpret the readings on capacitors but my understanding is that the uf should go down as the cap is wearing out. i pulled a couple of 3300uf caps off of a board and they are both reading over 8000uf in my esr meter. i tried some new caps to be certain that the meter is reading correctly and it is. why would the uf go up on an old cap?

      Hi, I soft-modded my Xbox (1.6) some years ago (I think 5) with SID 12.
       
      The soft-mod main dashboard is UnleashX. I moved it (the 3 files) from E:\ to E:\Apps and installed XBMC4XBOX in E:\ making it as my main dash (with a shorcut.xbe).
      On the HW side I replaced the IDE cable with a 80 wires one and installed a SATA III 2,5" Barracuda HDD (connected with the Sabrent ide to sata board. HDD blocked with a 2,5" to 3,5" mount)
       
      I installed a lot of Xbox games and emulators, never had a single problem but this one:
      Since the beginning it keeps resetting the time zone (it happened very often). I always set it again, in all 3 dashboards (UnleashX, XBMC and the original Dash) but it keep resetting. I remember when updating to the last XBMC version, it seemed to reset less often, but i can't tell for sure.
       
      I was some good amount of months (maybe a year) without using the Xbox and when I came back to use it I noticed the problem is changed. Now it reset all the date settings to 1 January 2007 (ironically the time zone seems to keep the settings now).
       
      The Xbox is always connected to the A/C power. I think it's a software related problem, because it seems to reset depending on the date. I gave up on manually re-setting the correct date and leaved it as it was. It never reset anymore. It started on 1/1/2007. It's been a months now and date keeps going corectly (If I set the actual current date, after one or two rebooting at max, it resets).
       
      For curiosity I checked the last @Rocky5 installer to see what has changed in the last 5 years (I have a lot of installers, old stuff though). I noticed this note about main Features:
      Clock auto set to 01/01/2019 (No more clock loops)
      It can be something related to my problem??
       
      I want to specify that I'm really good with my old SID 12 softmod, everything works 100% perfectly aside the above mentioned issue and i'm not even sure it is related to the soft-mod or to the fact I moved UnleashX files or something else.
      So, there's a way to solve it, maybe changing some settings, replacing files?? Otherwise, if it's a issue not solvable on my old soft-mod, I could consider to update it with the new 1.1.7 installer (hoping to not damage anything).
       
      If you need more infos just ask, thank you and sorry for the bad english.
