Enigmah & Evox

Can I use the Slayers CD / If so - what should i choose?
I would like evox to be my main dash. I'm asking because i've tried so many things and I better just ask a professional before it's too late.

Custom dash has to be xboxdash.xbe
MS dash has to be msxboxdash.xbe
But then you can't use Live if you are planning to. If you want, you will have to put the custom dash off a CD, and if you want to use Live, turn modchip off and use Live.

i guess my question is this - it keeps stating that my harddrive is locked. i'm guessing this is standard even with my enigmah chip running. so that's where i'm confused - i can ftp into my box through slayers - but since it's locked i can't rename the files. or transfer.
i was thinking maybe i could put boxplorer on a cd somehow... i'll keep trying.
if anyone has any input and doesn't mind sharing that would be great. i have all the nessecary stuff so i don't need anything but alittle guidance.

1 - I created an Evox boot CD and started up with that.
2 - FTP'd into the Xbox and completely backed up the C: drive to a PC folder then burned to CD for safekeeping.
3 - FTP'd the Evox files onto the C: drive, renaming Evox's XBE file to MSXBOXDASH.XBE. This allowed to boot into Evox since EnigmaH does not recognize evoxdash.xbe
I ran like this for about 4 days. Then decided I hated EnigmaH and HAD to have Executer instead.
4 - Enabled the TSOP flash using a DPDT switch.
5 - Wired EnigmaH to another DPDT switch so I could turn it off.
6 - Created a BIOS folder on the C: drive of the Xbox and FTP'd Execiter 4976_02 1MB image into it.
7 - Disabled Enigmah, Enabled TSOP flash with the switches
8 - Using Evox's BIOS flash feature, I flashed the Xbox TSOP with Executer and left EnigmaH off.
9 - Installed an 80 Gig hard drive and prepped it for both MS and Evox boot.
This I left alone until last week when I found out how to bankswitch the TSOP.
10 - Installed a DPST switch to A19, VCC and Ground so I could bankswitch between the first and last 512K banks on the TSOP.
11 - Flashed Bank 1 with Executer 4979_06 and Bank 2 with original MS BIOS 3944
12 - Locked HDD using ConfigMagic.
Now I can just flip a switch and have my Xbox either run in "factory" or Executer modes. Uber sweet, especially if I ever decide to go on Live.
Hope this helps you.

is that way you don't like the enigmah - because it's not upgradable?

- No support for upgraded HDs
- No BIOS flashing on modchip
- 29 wires.. is that right?
- It came out almost 2 years ago

I have nextgen menu installed; which allows me to boot to ms dash (actually get an error 21 with that...no big deal right now); evox dash; avalaunch; & mxm dash.
So far i'm loving it.
I remember when i had it softmodded (without the enigmah chip) i could boot right into all this and play anything. i had some kind of fonts - can't remember
since i only did it once and got it to work i never backed it up or wrote down how i did it.
so my question is - i did put the complex fonts on this time; and i'm wondering - if i take my modchip out will it still boot into nextgen?
