This tutorial was tested on an xbox modded with a Matrix chip and evox dashboard V1.8.2812 but should work with any modded box with that dashboard or higher/newer version.

What you need:

1) Modded xbox with evox dash (1.8.1812 or later) installed
2) A 10 gig hdd (I think the only one xbox shipped with is the segate)
3) FTP ability and knowhow
4) About 10 min

1) Connect your pc to your xbox using your favorite ftp client (I like FlashFXP)
2) Create A backup copy of your evox.ini file (i saved mine to my desktop)
3) Create a new evox.ini based on your backup and replace everything under "[Menu]" with :

For EvolutionX version 1.8.2594 till v1.8.3285

Section "Root"
{
Item "MS Dashboard",@3
Item "Reboot",@5
Item "Power Off",@10
Item "Format F:",@210

}

[Action_10]

Info "Format F"
Warning "This will format F"
Progress "Formatting F"
#
# This will format F:\
#
Format f:

For EvolutionX v1.8.3682 or higher (newer)

Section "Root"
{
Item "MS Dashboard",ID_MS_Dash
Item "Reboot",ID_Quick_Reboot
Item "Power Off",ID_Power_Off
Item "Format F:",@210

}

[Action_10]

Info "Format F"
Warning "This will format F"
Progress "Formatting F"
#
# This will format F:\
#
Format f:

4) Save your changes and ftp it back to the xbox. (or in FlashFXP you could just open it in edit mode)
5) Reboot your xbox, select "Format F:"
6) Select Yes (warning anything on F:\ will be erased)
7) Wait 1/2 a second
8) FTP your original evox.ini file
9) Reboot
10) umm there is no #10.

Im sorry but i have got to correct you in this post.

Not all original xbox hard drives were 10 gig some of them are 8 gig. The fastest way to access this is to use the slayers auto installer disc 2.7 final and then go to the format menu and format f. if your drive is compatible you will now have a extra 2.4 gig or something very similar if not nothing will happen. And you have to have a modded xbox in the first place i.e. a softmod or a chip installed and another dash running on your xbox either unleashx, evox or something similar. With all mods the slayers disc will work and in my opinion no modded xbox should be without it.
