TestDisk shows XBOX FATX partition

#1 Post by Induna123 » 10 Dec 2013, 15:12

I've been using TestDisk to analyse all my hard drives to make sure they are correct and one of them came up as XBOX instead of Intel which surprised me as I have Windows XP installed on it. Thinking back I may have used this drive in an XBOX (the first one) and then took it out to use it back on the PC.

Just out of curiosity I took another hard drive out of the XBOX and connected it to the PC and it wouldn't show up in Windows XP. Apparently I need to unlock the drive before I can use it for the PC.

Two questions, how did I manage to format it with NTFS and install WinXP on it without unlocking it and how do I get it to show up correctly as Intel NTFS rather than XBOX FATX? There must be a file somewhere on the drive that making it report this.

Here's the log

Re: TestDisk shows XBOX FATX partition

When TestDisk starts, override the XBOX partition table type and choose PC/Intel instead.

If you really want to remove the old XBOX partition table signature, I can modify TestDisk to do it.
