You have to use the X-Flash software provided on the X-bit website to flash this particular chip. The software is still in its infant stages so you may have trouble running it on your computer. The software does not come with any BIOS files. You need to get them on your own.

As for the wire install, check the X-bit website, all the documentation and tutorials are there for whatever installation method you want to use.

Read the pinned topics in this forum, they will tell you almost everything you need to know.

okay - i try to help give advise as i received advise as a newbie as well - but you have to do your homework! read up, dammit!
once you have your act together, your best bet is to install COLORED bioses - get the M7 and 4977, then color them with xbtools, and THEN flash the colored installs into banks on the xbit.
while you're at it, do a search, burn a slayer's cdrw, and you'll be all set
and because you don't seem to read the tutorials, you should find out what drive you have, and burn on the appropriate media.
sheesh!

I've been looking for that media list for awhile, can you point me to where its hiding? Media seems to be the last cloudy part of the puzzle.

i did a search for "best media" (without the quotes) and got this:
http://forums.xbox-s...7&hl=best media
also, i think i previously searched "thomson media" for my thomson drive - possibly also things like slayer's, etc.
i had great results with the imation 4x cdrw (i bought it just for slayer's install) and i bought other cdrw's as well, but as the install worked first shot, i didn't need the rest.
