Xbox error message 08 means "No HDD found". When you set up your XboxHDM disk, did you remember to add both C + E files, and placed your eeprom.bin file in the correct folders before burning? If you did, try checking the jumper settings on your new HD. If your drive is larger than stock, you might want to add an F: drive partition, and if really big, add a G: partition too.
If you've done all this, try using an Xbox app named Chimp with your original drive, in case Xboxhdm didn't lock your new drive when it was finished writing the new files. This actually happened to me while I was dropping a 320G drive into one of my Xboxes, and Chimp was able to lock the drive without any hassles. Since then, the drive has been working just fine.

    Yes, an error code of 05 means your Xbox drive is unlocked. Ask me if you have any more problems.

    In this case you might want to try to just clone your old drive using Chimp.
    Using Chimp:
    Unlock your new HDD.
    Fire up your Xbox normally, and start Chimp. Connect the new drive to some kind of power supply, another Xbox works fine, or you can use a PC, or even just a Y-adapter in the Xbox you're working on. If you're using another Xbox, make sure you put a video cable in it, it doesn't have to be in the TV, just in the Xbox. Otherwise it won't boot long enough to power the drive. It's okay if it flashes error messages via the LED lights, just make sure the new drive is being powered.
    Now, while Chimp is waiting, unplug the IDE cable from the DVD-drive and put in in your new drive, but leave the DVD drive powered. You don't have to be too quick, so be sure not to bend any pins. Now have Chimp scan for devices. It should show you the HDDs in your Xbox. If it shows your new one, you're ready to clone. Now tell Chimp to clone/copy your drive. When it's done, lock it, and unplug everything and plug your Xbox back together normally with the new drive in it. It should work fine. If you're having trouble getting Chimp to recognize the new drive, it's either locked or the jumper settings need to be checked on the HDDs.

    If you have the "eeprom.bin" file backed up, fixing an error 05 should be no problem. The HDD just needs to be "locked". The eeprom.bin files is like a key for this lock.
    If you are making a new HDD, and still need to lock the new one but have the old one still, you can use Chimp.
    Otherwise, you'll have to use XboxHDM.
    If you don't have a copy of your eeprom file, you'll have to build a special chip that lets you read your eeprom.

What is maximum GB supported for hard drive


Normally there is not such limit in recent moterboards, but if you used old motherboards which released during 2007-08 they can support upto 500GB per slot, and there is normally 2-4 slots for connection of HDD.

In this way you can have upto 2TB of HDD storage.

07 red light on original XBOX


7 - kernel - HDD timeout

Most of the times, the IDE cable is not properly connected when you see this error. Please reattach the ide cable. Not only to the harddisk drive but also to the dvd drive. ALso try to reconnect the ide cable to the motherboard.

Press pretty hard so it goes all the way in. Make sure it is seated straight and proper in the drives and the motherboard. If you still have an error 7. Try another ide cable. If that won't work try another harddisk. If there is still no go, try to set the jumpers on the rearside of the harddisk drive. Set it to master or cable select.
If that doesn't work, it probably means your hard drive is shot. There are ways to replace it, you can learn how to do it here:
http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php
or here:
http://llamma.com/xbox/Repairs/Reading_Xbox_Hdd_key.htm

It will involve opening your Xbox, building a small device out of about $5 in parts from Radio Shack, using that device to read your eeprom.bin file, and then finally using a program called XboxHDM to create a new hard drive (a WD Caviar works well).
But you can find a used Xbox for around $50, if all that seems like too much trouble.

I fixed a few with this problem. It all revolves around the hard drive lock problem. You can use the hard drive swap method to reinstall your bios on the hdd. The trick is to simply unplug the cdrom drive from the ide cable, and boot the xbox normally, Instead of an error 16, you get an error 11, saying DVD drive not found. BUT, when you get an error 11, THE HARD DRIVE IS UNLOCKED BY DEFAULT!!! Now you can do the hot-swap method to read the hard drive on a computer. Download xboxhdm,

http://www.xbox-scene.com/software/software.php?page=linux

(at the bottom of the page) follow the instructions, and download the default dashboard files from the same site, just substitute dashboards in for linux at the end of the URL. Works like a charm.

Original xbox


16 - dashboard - Clock cannot be set.
Basically it comes down to this. Error 16 has to do with not finding the menu setting with which you can set the clock of the hdd. This happens to a lot of people that erase their hdd (original/upgraded) or MS dashboard files and after that they don't immediatly install the hdd but leave the xbox without power longer than 5 hours.
It's all about the hdd can't find the menu with which it can set the clock. This is mostly because the xbox hdd is empty (you removed dashboard or fux0red it via ftp). The problem arises when xbox searches for menu to set clock with, can't find it and voila: error 16. Well read on please!
So you have an error 16 huh? Don't worry "nothing" is broken!
You have an xbox hdd that is locked. And normally you can boot in original and modded mode. Retail or upgraded doesn't matter. You start playing around with xboxdash.xbe etc. using ftp programs. While doing this you "accidently" remove your MS dashboard and also your alternate dashboard (Evox, etc.) so there is no dash anymore on the xbox hdd.
You end the ftp session and after that you shut off your xbox. Normally when you would start up again it gives you an error 13/14 ( no dashboard found). No worries with a slayer Evox cd (and a hardmod), all is ok. BUT this is only WITHIN 3 hours or so.
This is because the internal clock of the xbox will only be kept alive by the capacitors for only 3 or 4 hours. So when you leave your xbox unplugged from electricity for over 5 hours after you have played with the .xbe's AND you have removed your (ms and evo-x) dash from your xbox than you are fux0red. Why do you ask?
Why can't I boot from disc?
Its as follows Xbox starts booting==> (almost 1st thing a xbox does is) searches for internal clock==> doesnt find internal clock because there hasn't been any electricity on the xbox for 5 hours so battery that kept clock alive is empty and clock is gone==> searches for the proper dashboard menu to set clock with ==> doesnt find msdashboard or evo-x dashboard menu becuz you have removed it from the hdd for whatever reasons you had==> xbox gives error 16: cannot set clock.
So what do you do about it? Two options!
1. There are some bios'es around that allow the chip to boot past the clocksetting. (do a search!). So how do you get that bios on your chip because you cant boot to a flash program or something? Well you need to have an external flasher.
It seems the m8 bios will take care for you of booting past the clocksetting. Or use the latest Xecutor bios
2. This is the more easy and newbie friendly strategy
-Get a friend with a modded xbox.
-Unlock his hdd with eeprom management from a slayer evo-x cd.
-Than, place his hdd in your xbox.
-Boot with your chip on.
-Now the xbox DOES find a dashboard when you boot in original mode and you can set the time in the msdashboard clock settings.
-Shut off xbox and remove your friends hdd
-PLace his hdd back in his xbox and lock it again
-Install your hdd
-(clock has been set) So boot up with slayer cd.
-Install normally whatever you wanna install
-lock hdd

If you get an error 13 after this, please read up on the error 13 explanation!
13 - kernel - Dashboard launch fail (due to missing/bad key, or anything else that would prevent it from running) and the dashboard didn't specify why it failed.

The error it gives is because of the incompatibility between the (older) dashboard (4920) that older slayer cd installs and the new dashboard/kernel versions found in some new xbox's and found in xbox's that have been connected to xbox live (when you go on xbox-live, it'll upgrade your dashboard file to i believe it is now 5659.03. This dasboard is incompatible with the dash that (old) slayer cd installs (for example 2.5 or lower) for you.

(In detail, in the eeprom chip there is a kernel which is incompatible with the dashboard (4920) that slayer installs.)

So what do you do to fix it? You can use the dashupdate found on most new xbox games! Be sure to 1st unplug your ethernet cable before you do so!!!

Besides that, just use a good installation disc and all is fine. Use a 2.6 slayer or something similar
