I used Slayers Auto Install disc. It formats the drive, installs Evo-X, partitions the drive and installs your apps etc.

It doesn't take long to format a new drive though, so chances are it has been formatted.

i think it might be the hdd as ive used the cd on my original hdd and it worked fine. does anyone know if it could be because the hdd was formated first using a pc?

I remember the days when I purchased my new xbox for over £300, reading tutorial on how to add hard drive, had my pc switched on unlocking the drives while hot swapping the ide cables from pc to xbox lol

CD version is much easier :proud:
