Xbox 1 hard-drive swap - Help Needed !

Hi

Just bought a replacement HDD for our XBOX 1 and i'm struggling to get it working and formatted.

I know that auto installer deluxe v4 can format it and write the partitions etc but i can't get to that point without an error code

Tried booting the aid disk with the original HDD and then swapping the drive over but it crashes, booting with the new drive in place gives errors

I know the drives fine as its visible in Windows, albeit unformatted

Can anyone help at all? or point me in the direction of a recent tutorial.

Thanks in advance !

I don''t think the installer is the problem.

I don't know whether i'm supposed to be booting with the new drive in or the old one, and whether it should be set to master or cable select etc etc

All the guides i've read are really out of date

I can help you

first of all are you using a soft modded console or does it have a mod chip?

That's cool

The easiest way to do is using Xboxhdm as in the guide above

If you have a read of that any snags and i'll help you

It's a lot easier than it sounds just make sure you back up your eeprom

Stick 'Chimp' on your XBOX - it makes things really easy mate. (Chimp is an app BTW_)

yeah i read about chimp, don't think i'll need it though, i'll just use xboxhdm in the future.

Cool, Chimp is OK as long as you have an old xbox

You can't go wrong with Xboxhdm though as you don't need to do any form of hot swapping
