Hi everyone,

Today I tsop flashed my V1.0 mobo using the TruHexEN 2021 disc and everything was fine until I used option 4.2.11 (install all dashboards.) Now I woulda thought that if my C had become that choked for space it would have simply asked me if I wanted to continue installing to the location I was, change location or cancel all together... but it installed to the C and nowits full and even using filezilla to ftp into the C, I can't peer into the "Do not touch anything in here" which I am suspect is the major culprit why my drive is claiming to be full.... anyone know of any methods or tools to clear up the C:?

As the Xbox is now had the bios flashed you could try the restore to factory option then after rebooting the Xbox with the install disk in the DVD drive you can then install 1 dash.

Is the HDD a stock drive?

HeXEn 2021

After TSOP flashing the console, you need to use the option to clean the softmod files from the console.

The option is most likely 3.5.2 Clean C partition after TSOP flash if it wasn't changed to a different location when the dev created the updated version from earlier releases such as HeXEn 2018.

No, it a 200 gig upgrade. I still have the original and thought about just saying screw it and clone it agian on the 200 gig again. I also tried using the option to clean up installer files after i used the TruHexEn 2021 a couple times, but it still would have issues (even tried using some if the installer methods to erase and redo the  C drive and it would error out not being able to delete anything)

You don't need to clone it as that creates issues with drive sizes.

Just fit the new hard drive and boot the Xbox with the install DVD disk in the DVD drive then use a setup new large hard drive option.

Simple solution for a major problem. :D

Download my installer and give the HeXEn to your kids (in case of) as frisby.

After you have burned and booted the OGXBox installer select:

"3. Format & Setup / Backup & Recovery."

There you selcet  :

"3.1.6. Format Single Partition."

And there you can set up your C Drive new.

"3.1.6.1. Format and setup Partition C."

Should you have also problems with your E partitionI recommend to use

"3.1.6.2. Format and setup Partition E."

That will format your E drive only and copy all needed Apps, Dashboards, ect.

AND if you like to do C+E you can do both in one by selecting :

"3.1.5. AiO Setup a new HDD (C+E Only)."

Your F and G partitions will not be touched in any case.

You beat me to it was about to type instructions much the same and suggest to frisbee the Hexen disk out the door.

Certainly will give it a go. Wheres the link so i can download it?? I think I tried downloading your installers before and the links where broken.

The links are fine if you use the folder links:

https://1fichier.com/dir/mX1kipIz

https://mega.nz/folder/xUl13A4B#d_RMbhNrNA81QhgwoaUv4g

Use the "OGXBox Installer 2021 - v1.5.3" and not the MakeMHz Edition. ;)

The HeXEn 2021 had this function as well when I gave my version of HeXEn to ToXicMedz but, like you know, he removed everything which was good and added these evil things like passwords and things back into it. But hey WHO cares about HeXEn? AID, Rocky5's or OGXBox. And for the memorys and becaus it can be usefull a copy of Slayer's.

Thanks for the link, downloading now and as soon as I get results I'll post them here. I can't for my life figure out why ToXicMedz wouldn't include uninstallers or something more robust to prevent this from happening. Or at least include something to efficiently clean out your C drive if it does get full. Right now it shows 16kb of free space and depending on the dash i use it will either hang on the Xbox screen (after flubber) if i set it to unleashX (if im remembering right from last night.) But if I set it to AvalanchX it will boot and then i have to turn off the warning messege otherwise I can't see around it to do anything (no way to really dismiss it??) I'm hesitant to even play anything for fear of running into random errors..

      I'm running into an issue where just the following 4 NTSC USA games won't load on original firmware from retail disc (get stuck at the Xbox logo + Microsoft text after putting in the disc), or from hard disk via ISO or extracted files (just go to a black screen where even IGR won't work):
      Chicken Little Shellshock: Nam '67 Without Warning The Suffering: Ties That Bind I'm positive that these are good discs (used for the tests I've run on original firmware) and ISOs that I've ripped / converted myself and validated against Redump hashes (for the ISO loading failures).
      Full details on the setup and things I've tested follow:
      I've got an NTSC 1.2 Xbox, upgraded to a 2TB drive, using the recommended ~937 GB F/G configuration with 64 KB clusters on those partitions, on a StarTech adapter. The drive has been locked, so I can still use stock firmware. Clock capacitor has been removed (and clock time set), and the 5 largest capacitors (3 for CPU / GPU and the two large ones on the lower left / right of the board) have been replaced. An original Xenium chip is installed on firmware 2.3.1, with banks flashed for both EvoX M8+ (modded with EvoTool to add LBA48 support), and iND 5003 (the recent modified version with re-enabled XBL and reboot fix). Using 480i composite video out. The Language is set correctly in the MS dashboard to English, which should work with these 4 games.
      I've got the proper files in place to allow ISO mounting, and all my games are installed via this process:
      Dump disc with a Kreon firmware SH-D163B drive to full ISO Validate the CRC matches the Redump CRC (so I'm sure I have a known good dump and the disc isn't the problem) Extract the files from the Redump format ISO with Xbox Image Browser 2.9 build 0350 Use Qwix to turn the extracted files back into an XISO compatible for hard drive loading Split the XISO, if over 4GB, at 4292870144 bytes into two pieces, and name them gamename.1.iso / gamename.2.iso Throw the ISO into F or G, and run the XBMC4Gamers ISO prep script to put them into a unique subfolder, as well as extract the thumbnail and game name and put them into the launcher XBE that actually mounts the disc files and plays them. This gives me 2 ways to launch my games: I can either launch the ISO from XBMC4Gamers, or I can boot into the Xenium menu with the eject button, choose to launch the stock TSOP, boot into the original dashboard, then put the original disc in and play without any mods whatsoever.
      I have hundreds of games working perfectly this way, but those 4 games won't boot on this Xbox, no matter what I do.
      If I try to launch them through the ISO loading method from XBMC4Gamers the screen just goes black, then stays black indefinitely. IGR no longer works, and I have to hard power down the Xbox.  (The same thing is true if I extract the files to F:\games and try to run the default.xbe.)
      If I try to launch them by booting into the original firmware on TSOP, waiting for the original dashboard to load, then putting the original disc in the tray, the Xbox changes to the Xbox logo screen, with "Microsoft" below the Xbox logo (aka "I've recognized a legit game and I'm loading it"), and then just stays on that screen forever, without actually starting the game. The only thing that will break out of that is ejecting the disc, which takes me back to the dashboard, or powering off.
      I've tried clearing the cache drives before loading these. I've also tried deleting the TDATA and UDATA for those games (as well as backing up all of E and wiping it clean).
      This has me stumped, because:
      I know the discs are good (dumping with a Kreon matches 100% to the Redump ISO as validated by hashes, plus 3 of the 4 look factory new) I know the disc drive can read games fine, as it can load any other original disc I throw at This doesn't appear to be a copy protection thing, because it happens equally when running EvoX M8+ / iND 5003 and loading an ISO or with stock firmware and loading the original disc, and when loading the original disc, we don't even get past the point where the Xbox logo / Microsoft text beneath it leave the screen to hand control over to the game. I know the Xbox is reading the disc, because if I boot into modded, rename E:\TDATA and E:\UDATA to E:\TDATAold and E:\UDATAold, clear cache drives, then shutdown, boot into stock firmware, put the disc in, let the system hang at the Xbox / Microsoft logo, eject the disc to return to the MS dashboard, and then check the Memory tab, the only entry there (as expected) is the one entry for the game I tried to boot, with its correct picture. I can't find any reports on the restored xboxscene forums, here, or reddit claiming that those games had issues booting for anyone else (though they're niche titles, so maybe no one has tried and bothered to post they don't work?), or any sort of Wikipedia article or the like talking about the games with a section mentioning they have issues loading on certain versions of Xboxes, etc. So in lack of that, it makes me think they should work and there's something else I'm missing.
      Any thoughts as to why these and just these 4 games don't work, either through ISO loading, extraction to hard disk, or known good retail disk on retail firmware would be really appreciated - I'm stumped!
