Total Hdd Space Available Shows Incorrectly


Recommended Posts

I swapped in a 1TB drive and an 80 pin cable into my unit. I went and formatted the new disk with the Hexen 2018 CD, and setup the Xbpartitioner with the extended partition at 948 GB in 64k clusters. So the space free for F shows 948 GB until I reboot into Unleashx. Then it becomes around 123 GB free. If I go into the menu and restart Hexen, it boots up and shows the correct free space. What gives? I have r reformatted several times

I have the EvoX logo. When UnleashX boots it only shows 123 GB capacity on F in the File Explorer. If I go to the HeXEn tools section and open it, it shows the full hard drive capacity on F.

From some quick research, I should boot from the CD and flash the Evo M8+ F and G 256K BIOS. But I cannot decipher the difference between this BIOS and the "MOD" version. Is this what you are suggesting I do to resolve this issue?

Yes, go in to the modchip and TSOP section in hexen and you need to load a 256kb bios f and g partition or 6 and 7 partition. You just need to know if you have a 1.6 version box or earlier as if you flash the wrong version it’s a pain to correct.

      Hello All,
      Long time listener, first time caller here.   I have never modded an XBOX before, but looks like a fun project and I wanted to run my plan by the gurus on this forum to avoid any potential pitfalls (i.e. destroying the data on the original HDD doing something stupid being a newbie) after watching a ton of YouTube videos on the subject.
      I have an OG XBOX v1.6 that was modded and setup around 6-7 years ago.  The motherboard died and I am looking to swap that drive into a new system and upgrade it to an unlocked SATA HDD (I don't want to have to deal with locked HDDs anymore).  I have no knowledge of how it was built originally aside from the HDD password, but I love how it is laid out and boots up directly in to the emulator menu, etc and want to keep that. 
      There is no evidence of any hard modding on the motherboard (no chip, no bridged soldering, etc), so I am assuming some version of soft mod. 
      I  have two working units (v1.2 & v1.4) and both are currently soft modded with the latest Rocky5 build with stock HDDs.  I did install XMBC-Emustation on one of them, but aside from that, they have nothing special going on with them and I don't need anything off those drives. 
      30K foot view of my plan is as follows:
      1.  TSOP mod one of the working units and flash the BIOS with Evox M8 with F & G (HeXen 2020).
      2.  Take the currently modded HDD (400GB) out of the dead unit and using Victoria, remove the user password.
      3.  Install that HDD in the new TSOP modded unit and test (I assume that since the password is removed from the drive and the BIOS is flashed, it will simply boot even though I have no idea how the HDD was originally prepared).
      4.  Assuming steps 1 - 3 go as planned, convert the TSOP unit to an 80-pin cable and IDE/SATA adapter and clone the HDD to a WD Blue 500GB SATA using Chimp. 
           -Am I correct in that I should pick the TSOP hard mod option in Chimp even though the HDD itself is soft modded?
           -Since my new SATA is bigger than the drive I am cloning, pick option 2 for select partitions and pick option 4 so partition G takes up all the remaining space on the larger drive
      5.  Shut it all down and remove the stock hard drive and install the SATA in the unit and hopefully it all boots up correctly.
      6.  Assuming everything up to this point went well, clone the new SATA drive with Chimp to another WD Blue 500GB (this time I can just pick the full disk clone option)
      7.  TSOP the second working unit and install the cloned drive and have 2 working, upgraded units.
      Let me know your thoughts and if you have any suggestions.  I appreciate the feedback!

      I've softmodded my first xbox and I upgraded the HDD and I've heard about the wonders of Emulators, Homebrew ect ect, now I'm wondering where do I download emulators lets say for the N64 or Sega Genesis? All help is appreciated.

      long story short, ages ago I softmodded a 1.1 machine and naturally locked the drive after upgrading it. shortly after I tsoped it though, and zeroed and password- without backing the original or unlocking the drive.
      I tried chimp261812 and neither master password (XBOXSCENE and TEAMASSEMBLY) worked. the master password *should* be a string of 32 T (it's a samsung drive) but chimp won't let me input a different master password. there's the hddkey.txt option but it only accepts 16 bytes of hexadecimal characters, unless I'm missing something it's not related to the master password.
      there's also the linux terminal but I'm not sure what I'm doing here. any ideas?
