    When installing a new hard drive do I have to back up my old hard drive because I don't have any games on my old hard drive and cant I just use auto installer deluxe to put the microsoft dashboard no the new hard drive.

    First you need a hacked-bios installed modchip.

    Before using slayers evox auto-installer it would be a good idea to backup all the files from your original xbox harddrive just in case something goes wrong. If it does, then you can FTP the files back to the drive. Without the backup files if something goes wrong then there's no chance of getting your xbox working again.

    if you are takeing your old drive out and puting a new one in just keep the old one in a safe place so if something goes wrong you can put it back in. if not the just get the modchip installed like normal, and when you go to flash your bios through ftp (which is alot easier then flashing it over a boot up cd) just copy all the stuff on your c: and e: drive in your xbox to a folder in your pc. if something goes wrong you can just past those files back onto your drive and still have a xbox that will work. and you can start over again.
