Hi Guys,

I am looking to upgrade the Hard Drive in our original xbox; however reading the different tutorials I will need a tower PC to add the hard drive to, to set it all up. We only have a Laptop is there any other way of doing it?

IIRC i did it by using slayers boot disc to unlock the installed hard drive, inserted the larger hdd and re-installed everything from the boot disc.

Looks like auto installer deluxe 4.52 is more up to date, downloading now to have a play with later

I will have a look, I never followed a tutorial just got messing with the disc after someone gave me an old xbox that wasnt working to muck about with (turned out to be a loose connection inside that needed pushing on.

Thanks dontasciime, I believe the answer to my question is: Hard Drive Cloning using Chimp.

Do either of you guys know how best to identify a hard drive subtible for the XBOX, I take it any 3.5 hard drive wont work.

Ive not had a problem putting any 3.5" IDE drive in any of mine (I have 3 but have probably done more than a dozen others for people)

There are certain adapters that allow you to use SATA drives too that cost about £3

THIS ONE for example

I was going to uplgrade the Hard Drive using Chimp, I watched a tutorial last night on Utube it seemed possible.

Thanks dcx, Im new to all of this :)

This is the vid i watched on Youtube which leads me to believe I should be ok to do it all without the need for a PC

If you cant get to an old PC you could always try this and let me know how you get on! lol
