It’s actually not that hard to format the XB1 HDD now. There is a Windows script available on the net. That script can make the self installed hard drive perform like the factor one by changing the UUID. I tested the script, it’s super easy to use, just pick the standard 1TB or 2TB option, then it will do everything for you.
After that, simply install the new hard drive back into the XB1, and then boot from OSU1 to re-install the OS.
I have a 2TB SSHD formatted by this script, and I tested it on my XB1. Factory reset works, no more error code, it’s just like a factory 2TB SSHD XB1.
Someone claim that even 4TB options works, but I never tested by myself. Not sure how can that work flawlessly without any official 4TB XB1 as reference.
There is no need (in fact, prefer not) to mess around with Linux, self adjust the partition size, create folders / copying files to the system partition…… anymore.
My stock XB1 HDD is a Samsung 1TB. And I tried the 500GB HGST HDD which pulled out from my PS4, it also work. And I upgrade it to the Seagate Firecuda 2TB SSHD. That also work flawlessly.
Don't worry, you can, I just did that yesterday with the most up to date dashboard.
No need, I just did the upgrade without any files from the old HDD.
I suggest you do the following.
1) hold down eject + bind buttons, tap the power button to boot (keep holding both eject and blind button) until heard the 2nd boot sound effect.
2) choose factory reset in the diagnostic manual. After reboot, shut down.
3) use the Windows script to format the HDD. No need to copy anything on it. I tried it myself. 100% sure no need those folder A, folder B... the HDD can be 100% clean.
4) go to the Xbox support webpage and follow the steps about boot with error E205. It will lead you to the download the correct OSU.
5) format a USB drive to NTFS
6) unzip the OSU and copy that folder (with all files inside) to the USB drive root folder.
7) install the new HDD
8) plugin the USB drive and Ethernet cable
9) hold down eject + bind buttons to boot until the system update start.
After step 9, your machine should go back to the init state with the new HDD.
Just finished the 2TB SSHD upgrade base on this guide. However, step 4-7 is hard. With some research, I found that 's actually much easier to open up the XB1 by pressing the correct "pressure point" to unlock the clip. Just press the correct position, hear the "click" sound, then move on to the next clip. Apart from that, this guide is good. I cannot remove the wifi board connector (step 19) because it's very firm, and I don't want to apply hard force on it. But it won't affect the HDD swap, I can just open the top metal with the cable still connected and take out the HDD.
I highly suggest that swap the HDD, install only the front cover and connect ALL cables (zero screw required) to do a boot test. Only reassembly the XB1 if it can function normally. Otherwise, there will lots of work to take the HDD out and re-format it again.
Apart from Linux, there is a script for Windows to format the HDD, and I do everything via a virtual machine., extremely handy.
