I thought it was fairly straightforward if your xbox was chipped? There are a few experts on here who should be able to claify (timothyw9 and dxx badass spring to mind)

If its hard modded then the modchip should do the work for you.

With it being softmodded you need the eeprom from you xbox to use with the new harddrive as they are paired.

If you've already got it softmoded, you can transfer to a bigger drive. I've done it before using a hot swap method. It's been a couple of years, but there's bootable DVD/CD with all the tools on.

Quick google found this http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/xbox-tutorials-185.html

Found the source of where I originally asked on how to do this on AVForums and how it turned out here

I used Chimp a HD Tool - Available from here

Tutorial I followed here: http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/xbox-tutorials-255.html

Cheers for that, i am just about to softmod my xbox, got it all ready (so files are on the hard drive) spent gaes looking for a game that would update it, as it was nearly brand new anc never really used. Then found out i had the wrong splinter cell lol

i reccomend using chimp. The xboxhdm method is rather complicated imo. you need to make sure you get the right hdd for your xbox as not all work with it. I advise googling xbox hdd compatibility list

Get a molex splitter and use chimp. Since it's a softmod you will have to lock the new HD with your xbox's eeprom. If your softmod has a shadow c drive then I think you have to switch that off to make sure you use the real eeprom.

thats right but i think chimp gets the eeprom from the motherboard as i have never had to muck about with shadow c before
