Hey there!

Have a strange one. I recently picked up an orginal xbox that gets error 16 when booting up.
I opened it up to find a 40GB harddrive had been installed in it. I figured it may have been a soft mod gone wrong.
I followed this tutorial here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07MSbQPYhFc and still got error 16.

Is the xbox a complete write off or is it recoverable? When i do the hot swap it hangs on the xbox screen only for a short time before getting error 7 or if im too slow error 16, so after the linux CD is been run I have to reboot xbox.

Anyway, any help is really appreciated.

Cheers

Hi evilkud,

Sounds like you have some corrupt files on the HDD.. I'm not sure if this information will help you..

Service Error 16:
Info: Other files related with the dashboard or dashboard settings (specific dashboard error).

Error 16 means your xbox cannot find 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.
Solution: You may have corrupted dashboard files on your xbox hdd. Use the 'HQ Auto Installer Deluxe' to reinstall your dashboard.

Appreciate the response Smile

Yeah have read that, seems weird that even after formatting it back to standard using the linux .iso and then slayers disc I still get it though.

Im really at a loss and not sure what else I can do!

I'd use Hexen 2017 not Slayer's to restore the HDD. Try booting a DVD-R disc after burning the image of it to the media.

If that doesn't fix it/boot, you'll need to use XboxHDM and a PC to rebuild the drive -- XboxHDM23USB Beta 3.

You need to add the EEPROM backup, eeprom.bin (all lowercase), to the USB thumb drive in the same subdir where xboxhd.bat is located to be able to unlock/lock the HDD. This beta 3 version I'm told installs Rocky5's Xbox Softmodding Tool. You can use a USB to IDE or USB to SATA adapter to access the HDD no PC with on-board IDE required.
