    Original Xbox Hard Drive Upgrade

    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
