hopefully it will have a ST in there......
(hynix should be ok too but sharp tsop is a little more complex)
then under evox you could flash it with a good reliable 1mb bios butbe careful - if you do a bad flash then you gotta rip out your messiah-x and fit a lpc mod
you can leave the messiah in whilst you flash the tsop - it doesn't need the power wires cut like the enigmah's or xtender older 29 wire mods - though would suggest removing mod after flashing tsop.
then after all is done you can use any size unlocked h/d instead of being limited to the standard locked drive - heck first thing to do is unlock your h/d if you flash the tsop coz you ain't going live on a hacked tsop are you
just use a standard x2 4976.02 or 4977 - forget the colours and stuff - a few custom bios can be iffy so stick with the normal bios - and DON'T USE A BFM BIOS - YOUR TSOP WILL BE BOLLOXED - i did that a few weeks back and only just rescued my tsop after a 29 wire homebrew nightmare
best of luck

However I can offer another alternative to flashing to support a bigger hdd. Use Phoenix Bios Loader Metoo Loader to load a BFM bios with LBA48 support. This is software only. PBL Metoo is available from the usual places. There should be BFM versions of X2 5035 or IND Bios 5003 as well.
By the way you resurrected a thread from the year 2003. Why not create a new thread?

Thanks god I figured this out after lot's of reading...
Thanks again for pointing me to this safe direction (instead of flashing my bios)!

This was necessary due to the fact that I had a softmod running (the fonts hack) that loaded the xbmc from e:\xboxdash.xbe...
You failed to mention the softmod in your earlier post and why did you switch to x2 4981? How big is that hdd? I didn't mention x2 5035 and IND Bios randomly - they were chosen for a reason. Did you partition the hdd with xbpartitioner?
