I proceeded to do this and i have no lost EVERYTHING. I have had to start again! Its so demotivating. Any help off anyone please!?

What, specifically, did error message say? That is always helpful, and also check http://support.xbox.com/en-US/ to make sure it isn’t a problem with Xbox Live.

Otherwise:
1 – from the Dashboard, out of all games, hold the X button on the front of the console down until it shuts the system down.
2 – Disconnect the external power from the wall plug (or at least disconnect the wall-side connector on the power pack itself).
3 – WAIT until all power drains from the external power pack (no light, either white or dull orange showing on the pack).
4 – Reconnect the power supply to the electrical outlet.
5 – Restart the console in the usual manner, i.e., either with the controller or a short push on the X button on the front of the X1.
6 – WAIT until the console self-checks and fully boots to the Dashboard before attempting anything.

NOTE: If you don’t disconnect the external power pack and let the power completely drain out, the system is still retaining “old” stuff and not resetting.

Sign into Xbox Live and attempt to start the game. If it starts to sync DO NOT INTERRUPT IT or do anything else on the console until it fully completes.
There are several updates for the game, and it make take hours - such as four hours. DO NOT attempt to play the game, even if the installation says “Ready to play.”

When you are finished playing, always go back to the (A) TO START screen showing the FM6 logo, make sure to use the Big X button on the controller from the main window in the game to put it in the larger frame on the desktop. That makes sure it saves the current status to the cloud. Then use the triple horizontal line button (formerly Start on the 360) next to the Blue X to open the next window with X Quit near the bottom. Quit the game from there.

AFTER that, it is safe to quit out of the console, i.e., “Turn console off.”
