Where Do I Find Working Links To C and E Drives To Rebuild Xbox Hard Drive

Recommended Posts

Hi - I am trying to rebuild an xbox hard drive - I have the eeprom - a meant gave me an old Dell IDE drive - I know HDM v. 1.9 will work on it as I used it a few years ago.  Does anyone know where I can get  the C and E drive files for the rebuild?  Thanks

Okay so this morning I got HDM 1.9 working on an old PC - I need to backup and transfer my eeprom later - I notice when I look in the HDM folder right now that the C and E folders are empty - is that normal?  Remember this is before I turn it into an ISO - Do these folders fill up with contents once the program is running and the hard drive is attached to the PC?  Prob a stupid question but it's so long since I used this method that I can't remember.  Thanks

No, you have to add the content you want to be copied to the Xbox HDD.  For example, the 5960 MS dashboard files into the hdm\C folder.  With E left empty, XboxHDM will create empty E:\UDATA and E:\TDATA folders on the hard drive. But, it you have game saves and/or apps you want to be preloaded add them into hdm\E. 

The amount of content that can be added in total to the C and E folders of XboxHDM is limited to 528MBs.

Thanks - do you know where I could download the C folder files?  Could I transfer the C drive contents over FTP - I'm happy  to do this but I'd prefer a fresh start as I'm sure I'd probably be copying over things I don't need from my current xbox drive.

Disk is made - I'm guessing I'll have to re-softmod it - I want to use a more up to date softmod like Rocky 5 anyway.

Okay so I used HDM V 1.9 and now have a 40GB hard drive that works in my xbox - since I did a clean install - it appears to be a stock drive and the extra space doesn't appear.

 

I'm going to use Rocky 5 softmod - will the extra space show up then or do I need to do something else to get full access to the new hard drive?  Thanks

Yes, nothing else to do.

Until the console is modded and a replacement dashboard is installed, the MS dashboard will look no different.  It does not use the additional space. Has not access to it.

The replacement dashboard installed by Rocky5's Xbox SoftmoddingTool - UnleashX - will be able to access the additional storage space.

Finally, a working link to some clean hard drive files. Thank you very much.

      Please login or register to see this link. Hello everyone!
      First post, and happy to be here. I want to share something that will add value to the community. I've put together a video tutorial on how you can install games directly to the XBOX HDD through the internet and FTP. All you'll need is your softmodded XBOX, an Ethernet cable, and the HDD Ready games you want on the HDD. You'll be up and running with it in no time. Full how-to video is below. Please let me know if this video helps you so that I can make XBOX content that makes your gaming experience more enjoyable.
       
      Thanks,
      Blaine

      Hey! My name is Murderbox, and I picked up an original Xbox a while ago in a trade. Got it soft modded and have a 1TB HDD installed. Completely new to this realm, but I've always wanted a modded system since I experienced a buddy's back in 05. I hope to learn a lot here and meet some new people! Seems pretty extensive.

      My Xbox keeps giving me a bogus IP address
      I've been able to reset it going into system then miscellaneous Advanced Network stopping the FTP server will reset network restart
      Now that isn't working I've tried changing ports on my router it still gives me a bogus IP
      Is there any way to fix this
