if the drive is not locked, booting the MS bios will just result in an error screen. this means no live. you can however boot the ms dash with a hacked bios by booting it through your dash or a file manager.

You can still load your MS dash, but only with the hacked bios active (ie modchip on). The MS bios requires a locked HD, not the dash.
You won't be able to go on Live because it will detect your hacked bios and ban your xbox.

You seem to be getting your terms confused.

There is the dashboard (what you see and navigate through menus with after the xbox has booted) and the bios (the code that is stored in the modchip).

I'll assume that you are asking about a hacked bios, not dash. In that case I suggest the X2-4983 bios.
And no, we can't tell you where to get a copy (it is illegal). It can be found if you look in the right places.
