Og xbox, installing hdd from previous xbox into new xbox?

Recommended Posts

How would i go about moving a hard drive with xbmc dash already installed from a previous xbox to a new xbox?

The previous xbox died.

Is it as easy as just dropping the hdd to the new xbox???

Sorry to say but it probably won't work because the internal drive serial number on it will be different from the new one you're trying to add it to.  I'm currently going through a similar process upgrading my drive to a bigger drive and I'm learning the hard way.  lol

What I did was took the smaller drive out and put in the bigger drive - make sure that the new drive is formatted INTERNALLY as it will ask for serial number of your console (found in system info) before formating (I know, what a pain in the ass).  Don't make the mistake *I* did by formatting it using any of the external USB ports.

Once you've entered your serial number, your new drive should be good to go.  THEN you can start the painful process of copying all your files from the old drive to the new drive.

hrrrmmm... in hindsight, I wonder if there's a way to simply change the serial number on your old drive so you wouldn't have to go through this whole process?  (I dunno, maybe something worth looking into if you're feeling adventurous)

 

Good luck!

aaahhhhh....  icic.  Sorry, didn't notice the "og" next to the xbox in the subject line.

I think it'd be the same scenario unfortunately but worse.  I can't think of any other way to access the original drive without your old xbox thanks to m$ security.

hrrrmm.. come to think of it you can possibly use xboxhdm tool but you need to have your Executor XBOX eeprom backed up in order to unlock it.  I might've dabbled in it eons ago but gave up after a while when I couldn't figure it out.
