I just put a X2.1 Pro modchip in my friends XBOX. It's a 1.1.
Flashed with X2 4978.03 BIOS. Box works fine..until....
...my EvoX boot discs wont boot. He's got a Thompson drive. I've tried CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, and DVD+RW, and none work.
Whats up?

P.S. And yes, I burned them correctly.

If you can't get any discs to read and you are burning them correctly, just swap the xbox DVD player with a PC DVD player. There should be a tutorial on xbox-scene for how to do it. It's cake to do though!

I did that, exactly as the tutorial said. The XBOX fragged.

If your xbox is fragging, then I think that you have some issues besides installing evoX.

The XBOX works fine, I installed the chip perfectly, and everything is OK. It's just that it frags when I try to do that pc-dvd rom mod.

by fragging do you mean it boots to the "xbox needs service" screen.

If so, I've got the EXACT same problem, which is weird because I flashed the chip using the pc dvd rom, but the evox boot discs i've burnt just won't load...

I don't know if this will help but here goes: I had huge problems getting my v 1.0 thomson drive xbox to read any disc with evox on it. I tried everything: different brands, different burning specifications in nero, burned dvds, and I even tried using my pc dvd drive. Then this other guy on a thread I posted told me to download ultraiso and use it instead of nero to burn the iso of evox. I burned my slayers v 2.5 with ultraiso onto a tdk cdrw and it worked the first time I put it in the box.

I hope that helps. The only difference between your problem and mine is that my xbox wasn't ever "fragging."

sounds good to me...
but how do you burn isos with UltraISO? I couldn't seem to find any burn feature in the 30 day trial.

Check the jumper on the cd rom drive.

whoa... wait... jumper? Do you mean what sets it in slave mode (the little white pin)? I'm sure I've got it in slave mode (the middle set of pins), and I've got a 5.25 Y-Splitter going directly from the HDD power cable to the pc drive, and I just pull the IDE cable out of the DVD drive and plug it into the PC one... and I already used the the PC drive to flash my bios, thats why I am so confused.

And about that burn button, boy do I feel stupid now. Unfortunately it seems the program burns faster than I would like it to and I can't seem to find how to adjust the speed (I haven't picked up and TDK cdrws yet though either, memorex dindt work...)

Sorry, I should have named littlegreenbeast and given you the other thread, but luckily he was responsible enough to do so. I just wanted to get the message out to some other people that ultraiso solved my month-long problem. As for ultraiso, I'm not expert yet. littlegreenbeast is your man.

dont worry about the burn speed i was using slower CDRW's like a 4x i think and it told me it was burning them at 12x, that still worked so don't worry about it

also i got the imation cdrws to work and they seem to be sweet
