does anyone know about original xbox hdd upgrade?

Post by General Jewel »

i brought a compatible seagate 160gb hdd. I am trying to use chimp2618 to upgrade the hdd. My xbox is softmodded with the unleashx dash just recently. I put the chimp files currently via ftp. I open my xbox case up hook my new hdd by using a molex spiltter powering both old and new hdd. on the dash i take the ribbon cable from the dvd and put it inside the new hdd. I launch chimp where it says linux on the dash through my unleash x application menu. and when i am brought to the chimp menu i only see the options advanced and ethernet! i cant see the fatx menu to do the process...can someone tell me why this is happening?

I used HDDManager v1.09 from Xboxscene. You place a clean dashboard in C folder, place a fresh softmod game save in E partition folder then Make ISO.

The iso contains linux to lock/unlock drives, reformat partitions etc etc. Placing a fresh softmod game save in the ISO ensures every xbox HDD made with that EEPROM, skips having to usb transfer it later.
Guize I can haz kernal cuz i got purtty cmd window to say stuffs.
