'lo all...
Hate to sound like a newb / noob, but I'm baffled..
I got my mod chip in the Xbox earlier (v1.0 box if it matters) , and downloaded several Xecuter BIOS's from xbins, followed all the guides - make it 512k, get a dummy file, burn with Nero .... done all that, and the chip still won't flash!

On my screen, it looks likes this:
QUOTE

FlashBIOS (Cromwell 2.28 dev)
(blah blah...)
Cusstomized by Team (and so forth..)

ATA 28-bit LBA Support Only
hda: WDC WD80EB-28CGH1 24.84G24 &4GB Lck[107] - FATX - No MBR
1: detect FAILED, error=04
UDMAS

Please insert CD - Flashing Mode

____________________________________________________________

Tray pops out..
So I insert the Flash CD, the "Please inset CD - Flashing Mode" pauses ... pauses .... ejects the CD and starts blinking again... uhh.gif
I've also tried making the bios 1mb, still no luck.. I've also tried another CD-RW .. nope

Any ideas anyone? Greatly appreciated. If it matters, I used to Pin Head installation.

Thanks in advanced! smile.gif

[Edit: I've noticed the Xbox doesn't work with the chip disabled...

"Your Xbox requires service. Please call Xbox Customer Support."

.... damn...

Which brand of dvd drive do you have? It sounds to me like it isn't able to read your cd-rw. Thomson drive with Sony, TDk, or Memorex maybe? I've always had problems getting Thomsons to read those.

Along the same lines every Philips drive I've used reads Maxell 650MB CDRW.

It seems like it's not detecting your DVD drive at all. Usually it says what brand of DVD you are running before it pops the tray out....
"hdb: Samsung 605..."
"UDMA2"

you get:

"1: detect FAILED, error=04"
UDMAS

Is your IDE cable plugged in properly. This would explain why it doesn't work with the chip disabled....

Well, it COULD be your problem, but I'd be more worried that it's not detecting your DVD drive. It's not going ot be able to read anything from it if it can't even detect it at all.

What error do you get when you boot with the chip disabled?

Not a definate error # , but theres a 12 in the top right .. thats probably it...

The error guide says:

12 - kernel - DVD parameters (PIO/DMA)

No idea what that means, but I assume it means the DVD Drive isn't plugged in correctly?

Yup, it's something to that effect. You need to figure out why it won't detect the DVD drive. Once you can get it to boot with the modchip disabled, then you'll have better luck flashing it with a bios cd....
