Simple Internal HDD Swap

Can I simply put my internal HDD from my recently broken Xbox X into a brand new Xbox X console without having to format or hack the HDD? Or is each internal HDD specifically locked to the hardware/console in which it was manufactured?

I mean, if someone sends their Xbox in for repair and their HDD is dead, doesn't msft just slap in a new internal HDD? Or do they have to code it to work on that specific console?

Btw, I know I can just redownload all my games/apps into the new consoles HDD and I'm not concerned about voiding my warranty on the new Xbox X by opening it. But I want to know if a simple swap (without formatting/hacking) is still possible. Someone must know the answer.

Unfortunately you can not. This has been an ongoing issue for Microsoft since the original Xbox one. You can’t simply swap HDD. Some have had success reimage hard drives with Linux or windows commas prompt scripts but it’s is a very strenuous and tedious process that doesn’t always yield success.

Yeah I've been through that before. One of my co-workers did a hard drive upgrade on a Xbox One X, it required running the command prompt bat scripts like you said which required formatting the hard drive into certain types of partitions and putting in the firmware update image / boot logo files onto certain partition then letting it install the firmware.


I'm not talking about replacing the HDD with a generic store bought HDD. I'm talking about replacing the new Xbox Nr X HDD with my previous Xbox One X HDD (from my broken Xbox One X. Also, I was told in another post that I can do it because all Xbox One X GUIDs are the same.
