Found 20th Jan 2010
In a rush later as I have sold my 360 and the bloke is coming round 20 minutes after I get in from work.

How long does it take to format the xbox drive?

Is there anything else I need to do before selling it on, like a system reset or anything?

thanks in advance

unplug it

Only takes a min or so. Sometimes when you select the format option you have to enter the serial number for the xbox

thanks:thumbsup:

The hard drive is from my old premium, so do I enter that serial (its RROD and makes a good doorstop upstairs) or the arcade that I use it in?

You'll have to enter the serial for the machine its plugged in to. Think its just a security measure to stop you nerfing your HDD when you don't mean to :P

brilliant, thanks for your help

Done mine a coupe of days ago, takes minutes literally!
You will have to get the serial from the back of the machine as this pairs the HDD with the xbox.

yeah thats about it, nothing else to do, expect clean it and make it look nice.
