Ok, i've noticed a bunch of replied regarding this issue...and i know there are already about 20 threads with multiple answers to the infamous question, "How do i run Deus Ex 2 from my HD?" and "Deus Ex 2 jumps back to the dash after trying to load!" but i simply didn't feel like reply to each topic so here is what i did:

1) Use the latest versin of DVD2XBOX to copy the game to your HD
2) Simply use DVD2XBOX to patch the other 2 xbe's in the Deus Ex game directory. These files are Default.xbe, DX2Realease.xbe and xbErrorReport.xbe. Since DVD2XBOX automatically patches Default.xbe, there is no need to patch this again. Simly browse your files and folder via DVD2XBOX (Press 'B' at the selection screen, then highlight one the two xbe's mentioned above, hold 'Left Trigger' and select "Patch Media Check 1/2". Do this for both xbe's!!!

Forget about all the other so called "fixes" you have read about. I did not modify any INI files are anything of that nature. Here are my xbox specs incase you feel that may have something to do with this error:

XBOX v1.0
TSOP Flash with Multi-Bios Boot via Mounted Switch (For Xbox Live)
Bios 1) MS OEM 4034 Bios
Bios 2) X2 4973 (xbox version 1.0 specific) Bios

I hope this post helps you, as i found it extremely frustrating trying to fix this stupid problem.

If you were running a newer X2 BIOS, this wouldn't have been an issue wink.gif
Is there a particular reason you're still running 4973?

I'm only running the 4973 Bios because it's version specific to the v1.0 xbox bios. I've configured a multi-bios boot via a TSOP flash, if i flash my "upper" half of my bios with a newer so called "multi" bios then my box won't boot into the regular MS dash as the two bios's will be very different. I'm not sure if this is true, but considering the fact that i don't have a mod chip, i've very reluctant to try and do so. Any suggestions?

Well, after "thinking" i got deus ex 2 working on my box, i've sadly discovered that it's not! I've gotten past the initial problem when you try and load the game and it boots right back into the dash, but now once i exit the labratory and some woman from the order starts speaking to me, i enter the elevator and as soon as i press the elevator button, same thing...right back to my dash. Any suggestions?

As I suggested, in the other post with this same subject line, this is not a problem specific to Deus Ex. It's a problem that affects many games, particularly newer ones.

Read this tutorial, How to Fix Game Backup/Freeze Problems, and you should be able to fix the problem not only for Deux Ex but for any backup or freezing problem you will have.

I've tried all that already, many times...no luck! I'm stumped here, i don't know whether i should flash my TSOP with a newer "multi-bios" and possibly screw up my box. If anyone has a v1.0 xbox with a multi-boot TSOP, please let me know if i'm safe with the "newer" bios's....
