Hitting Head Against Wall
Posted 08 February 2004 - 11:10 AM
I've triple and quadruple checked all the LPC points, I've ensured it is a v1.4 so there's nothing additional I need to do to get it working, I've had D0 going to ground directly, from both points.
Regardless of what I try, I cannot get the chip to boot either of its preprogrammed BIOS's. I know it comes with two, one which is user flashable and one that is write protected.
Any suggestions, anyone?

Just connect the ALX D0 to the Xbox D0 not to ground and connect the other 2 wires to give control via both buttons.
It still works ok from the original bios I assume and boots M$ dash etc ok.
I know you probably tried this already. After reading your previous post I have ordered from the same place you got this and installed no problems so I would think the new chip should be ok.

The strange thing is, I did verify all my LPC connections using traces...
Most incredibly annoying. ARG.

I am an idiot
I could swear someone told me that the animation at the start only happens with the bog standard m$ bios's..
I let it boot up far enough after reconnecting all the wires and its working fine now..

I have to recommend xbox-mod.co.uk for their excellent customer service. I don't think I've ever experienced better :-)
Anyways, happy now

Installing stuff onto a 60gig now. :-)
Future mods.. LED colour, hdd activity methinks as well..
BTW, I don't suppose you know which drive/dir the saved games are typically stored on?
