    Yes those are your 2 options. It has been nearly a month since the last release from Microsoft though so if they're staying on track the new update should be here in a couple days.

    Hi all and XFiX, I'm currently trying to install a brand new SSD to my xbox one x and so I started using the script. My only problem is that windows assigned a non continuously increased number for the driver I'm trying to modify which means that now the number to select it is the same as the cancel number:

    Code:
    * Scanning for connected USB/SATA drives . . .                       *
    
    Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.18362.1
    
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.
    On computer: *****
    
      Disk ###  Status         Size     Free     Dyn  Gpt
      --------  -------------  -------  -------  ---  ---
      Disk 0    Online          238 GB  1024 KB        *
      Disk 1    Online          931 GB      0 B        *
      Disk 3    Online          931 GB   931 GB        *
    
    * Select TARGET Xbox One Drive . . .                                 *
    Enter 3 to CANCEL or use a Disk Number from the list above
    ?
    So I'm trying now to modify the script but I'm scared to break a drive from the computer xD. I've tried all my usb port this is the smallest number windows gave me so I need help now!

    UPDATE: Alright I commented line 283/ ::if %XBO_FORMAT_DRIVE% EQU %XBO_CNT% goto MsgEdrive, that's not super safe so I leave my post this way for future reference if someone else need or if XFiX wants to modify his script to include this kind of setup

    Hey all. Around two months ago my game froze and suddenly my entire xbox froze too. After turning the xbox off, I turned it back on and it wouldn't display on my monitor and after a few seconds, the xbox would shut down entirely. I took out the hard drive and confirmed that the hard drive had failed (wouldn't pop up on windows when I connect it to the SATA to USB adapter to my computer).

    I finally had enough money to buy a new hard drive. I followed this tutorial, got my new partitions, plugged in my new hard drive and I saw that the xbox won't display on my monitor. I tried different HDMI cables, monitors, but no luck. I know I at least fixed something because my xbox doesn't turn off automatically after a few seconds like previously. Is there anything wrong that I'm doing?

    Hi all. About a month ago I got the e200 error code after a power failure during an automatic update on my original XBOX One . I tried to fix the error with osu1 offline update but continued to get the same error. I tried repairing the hard drive with the script getting the same results. Finally, I bought a new hdd and used the script but only received the same “System Error: E200 000000EF 00000000” message after attempting to apply the osu1 update. The osu1 installation stops at the 77% mark, shots to 86% mark then boots back to the “something went wrong “ menu. Is this another issue besides the hdd or osu1 update?

    Thank you in advance.

    I was reading that there's a capacitor issue (PSU), mainly on the Xbox One X, that's causing the hard drive failures. Anyone know anymore on this?

    There was a post on REDDIT but the user removed their account not long after posting it. See below;

    Yes, its in the powersupply-chain, since they keep the fan-speed low and overheating the caps, the 2x biggest power capacitors 470uF/16V/105C on the motherboard under the ODD are slowly dying, thus deliver (intermittent)unstable powersupply.

    Under extensive cpu/gpu/hdd access/loading the power will fluctuate thus creating hdd corruptions, any new reset/new hdd is temporaly fix, they comes backs soon as the power is not fixed.

    I had replaced those 2 capacitors after dealing above errors for 3 months, reset/reformat/replace hdd/ssd/sshd/repaste to finally fixed the e10x,e20x craaps!

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    Hi everyone!

    I've been wrestling with my E20X (Sometimes it's E200, E201, E202, etc.) issues for a while now.

    Things I've done:
    - Hard reset (ofc)
    - Offline update via NTFS formatted USB using the newest OSU1 from today
    - Wiped my drive (using (g) in the script), and created new partitions (using (a) in the script), then offline updated. (resulted still in E200 error AFTER the screen flashed white (right after reaching 92% overall)which I assume is the xbox trying to start up the "connect your controller" part of the startup)
    - Followed the video using windows

    Things I've noticed:
    - When following the video, I had different behavior after booting the xbox with the empty but correctly formatted HDD

    EDIT: OOPS, accidentally prematurely posted due to a Tab->Enter lmao ANYWAYS

    The odd behavior I've noticed
    - When selecting the "Reset everything" option, it automatically rebooted (even though the video says it shouldn't know what to do since my drive is empty and thus reset the nand flash memory)
    - What's even more weird is once it boots up after this, it "resumes" an update starting at 72% (step 3 of 3)?? I have no clue how it's getting to this state? Is it from the flash memory??

    - Just to make sure that my drive was actually empty, I redid another time, made sure it was empty, and got the exact same result
    - An offline update after this doesn't change the result

    After like a few seconds of showing this update, it automatically goes to a E10X error (I'll update what exactly that code is in a bit)

    I've ordered a new HDD off amazon, though I'm afraid that I might run into the same situation since I (theoretically) should be starting from scratch when I reformat my HDD right?

    Any thoughts?


    Another EDIT:

    I just freshly formatted my HDD, plugged it in, and it booted WITH the update resuming... then an E106 error. Immediately shutting this down after seeing the error, then plugging it into my desktop shows that it automatically populated my Temp Content (U) with [$sosrst.xvd, appswapfile.xvd, and cms.xvd] AND System Support (W) with [user.xvd and Last Console]

    The only time the "resuming update" doesn't happen is after the reboot in the middle of an offline update. The reboot continues where the offline update left off.

    In this order; format the drive, copy the files from your OSU1 into the appropriate folders on X: then boot directly into recovery on the Xbox and offline update.

    Personally I am with you on trying a different drive.

    Thanks so much for a quick reply!!! :D

    By this, do you mean make an A and B folder and do the whole shebang with the updater.xvd

    and by boot directly, I'll hold down the eject and bind buttons till I hear the second "on" tone right?


    EDIT: If that is what you meant, it unfortunately ended (again) at 92% with an E200 error

    That's unfortunate. As you have a new drive coming in I would try the same process with it.

    Unfortunately, the new drive resulted in the same issues :(

    If anyone has any ideas, please let me know! I'll have quite the expensive paper weight for a while aha

    Yes, I'm the original poster. After the caps replacement, xbox1x (manufact SEP 2017) was working for 2.5 months total error free with full int. 2TB-sshd. (I used before also with new hdd/sdd)
    But after the last forced online system update end aug. (this's 2nd system update after the caps fix) xbox1x returns back to the usual E10x/E20x error routine, this confirmed online system update/OS crash/glitch is the cause.
    The factory reset with/without wiping doesn't work, keep looping the crp "something went wrong" menu.
    Finally after trying few times as it stuck/crashed installing midway the newest OSU1 usbstick offline system update and it wiped out the 2TB sshd.
    Its working now a week and had playing GEARS 5 whole weekend without any startup errors.
    From now on I'm NOT going to do any online system update, will use OSU1 only, you will lose the xbox splash/boot screen it stays black till the xbox-dashscreen show up. (You will need to put manually the bootscreen-file back on hdd with windows)

    I you have an XBOX1X with the persistent startup problems, most likely the capacitors in powersection on the Mainboard are fried, I know it, because 1 of the 2 caps a little bulge appears on top caused by overheating and slowly giving problems/dying.
    You'll know its overheating if the xbox fan doesn't speed up with gaming and the back exhaust is (very) hot.
    Search and look for xbox teardown pic of the mainboard.
    Replace the parts DIY or let it do by other DIY/local electronic repair shop.
    The 2 biggest caps and 2 little caps (red or blue coded) are located next at the back-top of the int. hdd.
    Replace the 2 biggest 470uF caps they're directly buffering the main-power for the whole system. Replace the 2 little caps also as the area was overheated.
    And because the fan control isn't working now, I think MS disabled the fan control with later sys.updates or the fan controller went bad, I remember the problems started just after the OOW and the fan doesn't speed-up and make noise when in beginning it was making sped-up making louder noise and exhaust is just warm when gaming.
    So I had put an adjustable fan controller from ebaysell: circuit5urgeon in to speed-up the fan and now the exhaust is just warm when gaming otherwise the overheating problems remaining.

    Hi guys! Thanks for nice tutorial! Sorry for my english.

    We try to fix my brothers OG xbox one. He bought Kinsgton A400 480 gb ssd and we try make new standard installation on that, because his old HDD has some struggling problems.

    We make everything like a video, but when we make offline update it stuck in the "applying update" about 60%.
    It gives us E102 error code.

    First we got "Drive X not found" error code, but when we selected in cmd option c "Fix GUID values.." it was right and Drive X was founded.

    What is you suggestions or is it some thermal problems in here?
    Can we make that new drive to 480 gb sized ssd or do we need to buy just 500gb ssd?

    Do you use power strip/splitter? MS say you need connect the power directly to 1st poweroutlet.
    "stuck in the "applying update" about 60%.
    It gives us E102 error code."
    Just keep re-update few more times till it finished and/or sometime try shutdown/restart in the "something wrong" menu, sometime it will continue and finihed the update by itself.

    There could be thermal problem if the xbox exhaust staying (very) hot and air doesn't blow faster?

    480gb size, reformat it with 512 standard size first and then reformat it with the autoresized format. Sometimes you'll repeat each 2 or more times reformat, when the each drive partitions doesn't have the drive names: System Support, System Update, Temp Content, User Content...

    Wait for proper answers from the experts...

    Thanks for answer!

    We worked it out!

    Our old Xbox 500 gb storage worked enough connect it to computer, so we decided try clone old drive to new drive.

    First we wipe new drive of all partitions and GUID values and after that connect source drive to computer. Then we choose b-option (Replace/Upgrade keeping original drive data) and selected for target drive option-d (Autosize Non-Standard w/ 500GB Disk GUID (1947GB MAX)). Of course we first emptied source drive in xbox. After cloning, we disconnected source drive and again started create_xbox_drive.bat. There we chosen c-option (Fix GUID values w/o formatting the drive). Everything looked nice and right in that point.

    Just like video we also just connected new SSD drive to xbox and it started and everything worked fine! So thanks for great video for that process too! :)

    So for the information of the people, if you want a new, not standard-sized hard drive to work on your Xbox, you need to clone the old disk into a new one.

    Thanks to this script and XFiX's help, I got my struggling launch day X1X Scorpio edition working, but not perfectly. I didn't want to pay Microsoft around £200 to replace my mint Scorpio with whatever they had to hand.

    It had been showing signs of internal storage issues recently, so I tried factory resetting it a few times and even an offline update. It would work for a bit before having issues running the dash and with local game saves.

    I had left it in a state of another factory reset without completing the set up process and decided to replace the drive with a 500 GB SSD. I decided to copy the contents of the factory drive's System Update folder to the prep'd SSD, as I figured it would be in sync with the state the console was left in. Upon booting it up, it automatically completed the update process and I went through the set up without any issues. However, now I've used it for a while I've observed some unusual behaviour.

    The OneGuide and Xbox Accessories app tiles don't display their respective icon. The Edge and File Explorer apps don't work and there's no option to download them or copy them from my Day One console. Any action that involves a full shut down wipes out previous launched games and apps from the guide and home screen and every game and app acts like the first time you've launched it (wait a couple of minutes message). The tile size selection in Games & Apps resets to large.

    I've booted into recovery and installed the offline update again, but these issues persist. I haven't seen anyone else report these problems. I'm hoping the next system update will resolve it. I've considered putting this console in the preview to get the next version, but am aware of the issues this causes if I have to pull the drive out again.

    Any ideas?

    If you performed the OSU1 update without wiping everything I would try it again with a full wipe.
    Personally I would stay away from the preview and wait until next release.

    Before I saw your message I did try a reset and think that's sorted it.

    I performed a full factory reset via the settings menu, then shut it down at the connect controller prompt, then booted into the recovery menu and did another full factory reset for good measure.

    After completing the setup process and applying previous console settings, the first thing I noticed was my tiles were already my previously set size instead of large, then I noticed the OneGuide and Xbox Accessories tiles had their icon on them, so the next thing I checked was the File Explorer and Edge and they both worked.

    I reckon the factory reset flushed the console's local NAND storage, so then it did a proper clean update.

    Now to sync all my game saves and app data again. I really wish you could force a sync all game and app saves via an option within the settings.
