I am by no means an expert, but unless you have changed your hard drive I don't think you can just stick it in you computer as a primary slave and try to copy files.

I hope to Gebus I can. All I have to do is replace one file with the backup and its fixed.

Two ideas
1)
I know its overly simple.
Get a modchip.
Boot to Evox.
FTP and fix files.

2)
If you have a friend with a modchip
(one that preferably supports more than one bios bank.)
If you have the original eeprom.bin as a back up.
Embed the eeprom in a bios.
Boot using that bios and hard drive.
FTP using bootable dashboard of choice Replace broken files.

Alright, fortunately I have a friend with a mod chip. I dont know if its a good one or not but we will soon see. After installing modchip, is it smooth sailing from then on?

Option #1
If you choose to install a modchip.
Things go as smooth as how well the modchip is installed. (and the modchip itself)
Its my opinion that most intermittent Xbox problems are caused by bad modchip installations.
These intermittent problems eventualy lead to complete xbox failure of one kind or another.
Once its done and working its the only way to fly if you truely want a modified xbox.
Again imo.

If you use option #2
After you boot to the new bios using your embedded eeprom
remember to swtich back to the xbox bios your friend was using prior to that.
Testing your xbox hard drive after you replace the busted file(s).
The hard drive may not boot in your buddies xbox. Expect that it wont. It's ok.
The point is that it boots in your own.

Option #3
Read, read read.
Get your information from as many sources as possible.

There could be other solutions you can look at as well.
