Running The Xbox Os On A Pc
Posted 17 February 2004 - 08:22 PM
I'm kind of a noob in this entire hack'n crack world, so here comes a weird but innteresting question, don't know if any one else have asked this.
I think it would be cool to run the xbox operating system on a pc.
I know that it would take a lot of work generating/creating some drivers that would fit the xbox OS, but wouldn't it be cool. I don't know if you can use some dll's from a windows OS.
I just think of it like this:
1) My computer starts the vga bios and does a memory check
2) it starts looking on my harddrive for a operating system and swing there is the xbox OS
3) My computer then boots the xbox OS, and then i'm in the xbox OS.
Maybe i'm a little weird for asking this, but i'd like a fx5950 ultra on my xbox.
If something like this already exists i would like to know about it.
PS. i'm not looking for a windows emulator

1. The xbox OS will NEVER been run on a pc, it is designed only for the xbox hardware. Besides why would you want to, windows or linux are much more functional.
2. There is no possible way to get your fancy Nvidia 5950ultra to work in the xbox. First its not physically possible with the hardware.. no room or agp slot. And if that were somehow possible (it isn't), none of the games/software are written for it, thus they wouln't work.
I suggest leaching around these forums, reading old posts, and learning something for yourself. These are pretty stupid questions!

Maddog interesting questions dude, just not feasible. Jerk just aint very good at getting his message across in a polite manner. He doesn't seem to understand the concept of forums being to ask questions. Sure the search button is jsut above but I doubt whether this question has been asked before and even if it has, try replying with something other than insult and innuendo cooljerk.

If only it was possible to run Xbox Os on PC it would be great because the DirectX implimentation is much leaner, faster, the thing that Jerk fails to realise is that sometimes less functionality is better
So yeah naive but interesting question.

But as Egox was saying less features to run, more stabil OS.
I Just don't think any windows where ment for gaming.
If i was MS then i would make, for an exampel, a directx OS whit no DHCP services running in the background or something else.
And yes i know that you can disable services etc. etc. but to make a dedicated gaming OS would be great.
And thats why i thought that the xbox OS (which has "standard" pc hardware inside) could be an option.
Thus i think that it on some level would be possible to make some drivers for it.
Now i rest my case, thx guys.

simple setup for simple gamers with little time or patience for windows to me windows needs to much maintenance
i think my util os and my game os would be best seperated for both convenience and performance
it might be possible if some one knew how to convert windows drivers

I'm going to take this up in my next semester on my technical college, there is a lot of brains there.
I will let you know IF anything comes out of it.
And if this seems to illegal for those brains, then i am going to purpose an emulator OS, and a xbox emu that works ;-)
And please if anybody has an idea to some of these "insane" thoughts, then please let me now.
And if anybody has other crazy thoughts like these then i would be glad to hear them too.
thx all (please have faith in my ideas ;-)
