Original XBOX Hard Drive Upgrade
Thanks! I'll give it a look. I know I had researched both drives to make sure I had the jumper placements correct, but that doesn't mean that I still didn't place them in the wrong spot...
My xbox freezes as soon as I remove the IDE cable from the back of the DVD drive and insert it into the back of the new HDD. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm following the instructions as written. - DarrenB64
Just to offer my 2 cents. You may want to check that you have your master/slave setup correctly for your hard drives. I just installed a larger HDD in my xbox using a Sata-to-Ide adapter, and as it turns out the adapter had a Master/Slave jumper that I hadn't noticed. I'm not sure that its the same issue you are having though, as mine would freeze upon launching Chimp, not immediately. - mintybreath

Thanks for this tutorial, it helped me a lot.
So after you format the F drive with chimp, you use ftp to transfer everything from E to F? - Tanman720
Well you shouldn't have to FTP anything from one drive to another; they're both partitions on the same Xbox, so you can just copy from one drive to another. What I did was FTP a completely new software package (CoinOPS Massive) from my desktop computer to the F: drive. The E: drive contained CoinOPS LITE, and I just left that where it was although I doubt I'll ever use it again now. - sudz28
I used Chimp (already installed on my Xbox) to reformat the F: drive, which is where the space ends up. There is no way to 'add' it to the existing E: drive that I was able to find. Thus, I had to move the stuff on my E: drive over to my F: drive. In the end I just ended up putting a larger version of Coinops onto the F: drive than I had on the E: drive. - sudz28
How did you go about doing that? I'm having the same issue.
YMMV, but I was never able to get it to work swapping that early. I am using XBMC as my dash, and I was able to swap the IDE cable after starting the Xbox, but before launching Chimp, and that's what worked for me.
