Xbox One E200 Error
Had a customer bring in a X One with the E200 error. Doesn't seem to be much documentation out there on a fix. Anyone fix this error yet?
Very simple fix to the E-200.
Try plugging the Drive into a Windows 8.1 PC through USB.
You'll need a USB to SATA connector from an external HDD Kit available everywhere.
A message will show up saying the drive has errors on it.
Wait a moment then go to File Explorer. It will show up as 5 different drives.
Mouse over each of the 5 partitions, right click and click repair on all 5 partitions.
Windows should repair them.
This has worked on all drives I have worked on with the E-200.
Plug it back in to the Xbox and you're done.
Hope this helps, it's worked 100% of the time for us.

If it is the E200 error with an EF in the second set of numbers I just fixed this this morning. I unplugged my Xbox One at work this morning without powering it down. When I arrived home it had the error message when I turned it on. Its going to sound bad but the easiest way to resolve for me was to just bite the bullet and do the factory reset option in the offline system update diagnostic tool. Cross your fingers and hope you have been connected to the server recently and you don't have any digital only games installed (I had one half installed so I was not worried) I sincerely hope this helps anyone out there experiencing this error message. If it does not then I heartily apologize
Go to Microsoft site & download the offline tool, make sure you get the version that covers all versions for factory reset. Copy that file to flashdrive. Insert in USB port of console with the XBOX off. Next step could take a few tries, press & hold sync button, while still holding sync button press & hold eject button, while still pressing sync & eject press & hold power until it beeps a few times. That tells you that it detects USB stick & the file on it. If it doesn't beep 3 times (I think its 3) you didn't do the button presses quick enough. Doesn't always fix but worth a shot. FYI the restore takes a while so don't be worried if you don't see anything on the screen for a bit. Don't power off while it is restoring, be patient.
i've tried many possibilites and nothiing will work restart or anything apon process so i will send mines in to get fixed microsoft does not know what the issue is and people are starting to get angry i wish i knew what cause this isssue but until then i wont be able to play my xbox for the time being
I am experiencing the same E200 issue. Did the OSU with no luck. Called Xbox and got into a bit of a argument with them about it. There is no reason that mandatory updates or faulty XB1s should be the customer's fault. They are supposed to call back today and continue discussions. Still going to take the stance that this is Microsoft's fault and try to get them to take care of it. Truly David vs. Gilioth here but I'm gonna try it. Wish me luck!
Was able to restore my son's Xbox One to factory settings by pressing "down-A-down-A-A" after a e200 error really quick. Then selecting "Restore to factory settings". First there was a e102 error message, but a hard reset handled that. After restoring the Xbox works just fine. Only the saved files on the harddrive and all account settings were gone, but easily brought back.
I FIXED MINE WITHOUT SENDING IT AWAY YAY!!!!!!!
Guys, i'm putting this in capitals because there is another fix rather than the offline diagnostic. do a full factory reset. it worked for me and when you sign into your account again, you have to download games again but it's better than sending it away for ages. :) i did this yesterday 20th june 2016.
I did a factory reset from USB a few times, it got me to the point where the OS would load but we're super sluggish, basically still unusable.
So from the Home screen I painstakingly got to the settings and did a factory reset from there, I guess it was a more stable reset process as it worked fine for a month (with digital games only) until I decided to install a game from a disc, once I tried to play the game it locked up and I cannot even get the brick to do a reset from USB now grrrrrrrrr
Piece of crap, it has got to be a bad HDD problem based on what I've experienced.
Very costly for M$ to replace drives and also will damage their rep even more especially when they are on the back foot against their competition, Sony.
Unless people take them to court I don't think they will accept and roll out a recall like they did with the RROD's unfortunatly.
There are also people suffering in silence who do not even realise it, with their disc based games taking 24hrs to install, this is also the HDD fault in play.
The problem is found far and wide across a lot of the machines, it really is the RROD all over again.
Update. I finally fixed my Xbox... It was stuck in a never ending E200, E203 loop. Everytime I rebooted it, reset it, etc I always recieved an error code of some sort. I had a feeling that the on board NAND was getting stuck in some kind of error state, so here is what I did. I booted the Xbox into troubleshoot mode using the bind, eject, and power button. I chose reset this xbox, and delete everything. As soon as the Xbox powered off I pulled the plug. I waited a minute, plugged it back in, and booted directly using to the USB drive by holding the bind and eject buttons while hitting the power button. The Xbox installed the OS from the flash drive, applied the update, rebooted to the "preparing console" screen. At this point it would usually stop and display an e200 error code, but this time it completed and booted into the initial setup. I setup up my wireless network, time zone, etc signed into my live account and viola! Everything working perfectly now. So if anyone is having problems getting the USB update to successfully install try that method. Boot into recovery menu, choose reset this xbox, delete everything. When console powers off pull the plug, let it sit for a minute, abd then boot directly from USB and install the osu1. Hope this helps someone!
For those who are experiencing this same issue. Kindly try following these steps:
Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
Select All Settings.
Select Console info & updates.
Select Reset console.
On the Reset your console? screen, you'll see three options: choose Reset and keep my games & apps.
Hope this will help :)
