[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.
