How do i fix x-box 360 e79 error permanently


Error code E79 on an Xbox 360 means you may have a faulty hard drive. This may be due to the hard drive not being connected correctly and can be fixed in a few steps. If, after following troubleshooting steps, the error does not resolve itself, you may need to purchase a new xbox 360 hard disk.

It is displaying a e79 eror code with bottom right coner light flashing red


This is similar to the E74 and you need to stop the heat build up on the console - you will need to either send it in or you can repair it yourself with a good Xbox 360 Repair guide

E79 is a hard drive problem. It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it

Bought a new hard drive for the xbox 360 ,and after running the upgrade all I get when I turn it on is a system error and a red light flashing on the console


Take a look at the screen you should find a number for the error code there like E80 or E79.
If it is E80 this means that the update went wrong and that the consoles kernel wasnt flashed completely.
This can often be fixed with an NXE update recovery disc, search for it on Google, you can download it from Xbox.com.

If you are getting an error like E67, E68 ,E69, E79 or something similar it will be harddrive related very likely, disconnect the harddrive and try to power the console if the problem is gone get a harddrive replacement, call Xbox Support they will take care of that...

If you should be getting a different error code take a look at this error code list this will tell you whats causing this certain error and how it can be fixed: http://xbox-experts.com/e/errorcodes.php

I hope this helps.

Nooooo


Here is what I found for error code e79:
E79: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it.
According to tmbinc: E79 is the error code if xam.xex could not be started, i.e. probably a file system corruption.
You might want to get in touch with microsoft and see what they suggest to fix this problem.Here is a link to their support site:
