[SOLVED] Duplicating Hard Drive for Xecuter X3 modded Xbox


Recommended Posts

Can I ask the community for some help please: I’m trying to make a back-up of my WD Blue 1TB hard drive from my Xbox and can’t seem to get the duplicated drive to boot.

My Xbox is modded with an Xecuter X3 chip and that is working fine; I have the X3 panel on the front which is lighting up blue and booting ok with my original drive – and it is booting to the X3 bios on my duplicate one.

I’ve duplicated my original drive using HDD Raw Copy 1.10 (through two separate USB docking stations). Obviously I received read errors throughout the process; but it has reached 100% and finished.

However, when I plugged in the back-up drive and booted up the Xbox, I got error code 16.

When I switched banks and booted to the X3 bios it updated some settings; but when I boot to the bios bank that should be loading my XBMC Media Centre dashboard, I get error code 13.

Basically my question is: am I missing something/doing something wrong?

I wonder if I still need to “tell” the bios that this is a different drive somehow?

Any advice gratefully received thanks.

Is the original hard drive unlocked?

Where you cloning to the same size hard drive (1tb to 1tb)?

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

Doh, I've just checked the original drive in the bios and it was locked! That would prevent it from being read by HDD Raw Copy right?

Both drives are 1TB WD Blues.

I've just unlocked the original.

      Got this xbox with a couple of 360s and it puts the logo up and the Microsoft logo also pops up then nothing.
      Put Halo2 disc in and it booted up and showed the previous players save games so i assume the HDD is working at least. Now i thought it had been modded as when i looked underneath it had warranty stickers over the labels you have to cut to open the machine. Also the modder/repairer and also put hot glue in the torx screws (twat).
      Alas no hardware mod and i know next to nothing about softmods (my modding was always HW mods).
      Also i got this nice message when i took the lid off.
      Some suggestions would be appreciated as at the moment I'm thinking something may have happened to a softmod.

      My LE Green Xbox which is very little used and has been kept in practically retail state (never opened) completely out of the blue decided to start itself the moment I turn on the main's power. Its been connected to the same power block as my most used Xboxes for years so when either are on it will have been getting some power to the clock cap but TBH I can't remember when it was last actually used; it has to be at least a month ago. Then this.
      It won't turn off using the Xbox power button but will turn off using the UnleashX menu option > Shutdown but then immediately powers up again. Its working perfectly otherwise. Clearly something has happened, probably partly due to the hot weather but what?
      My theory is that I made a big mistake keeping it plugged in so that when the other Xboxes were being used its clock cap was indeed being charged. Despite it not being used regularly that has led to its premature ageing and leaking, doing some sort of damage.
      I suspect I'll only know if that is correct by cracking open the case which I specifically did not and still do not want to do. So if the cause could be something else which doesn't required me to take its virginity advice would be appreciated.
