If I buy a new hard drive off of amazon, how do I install the Xbox OS back on? The offline usb?

SilentWorkForce - Responder

The only way I found was to clone the disc sector-by-sector. I read online that you can expand it by making the “user content” partition larger.

Do an offline update for xbox one x. I posted a link in another comment.

I read a post somewhere saying that if Microsoft detect non-standard hardware in your system you could be banned. Has anyone had any experience with this?

I didn’t remove the fragile connectors, that ribbon cable I just opened the lock and slowly slid out the ribbon cable, I finally just put it all back together it took me a day, I done it very slowly, I have a SSD in there, it’s blazing fast. After doing all that download OSU1, extract it and format your USB to NTFS, copy $systemupdate to the root of your NTFS formatted USB, the update will auto partition and script the hard drive, download OSU1 from Microsoft, specifically search for offline Xbox update, then good luck putting your Xbox back together. No need to run third part scripts anymore.
