whatever your bios currently boots from F: you can name the blackstormx xbe to that name and put it in F:. then you just have to edit config.xbx to that new .xbe name.

do you mean you want everything (BlackStormX folder, bsXdash.xbe, and BlackstormXCP.xbe) to be on F:\? Well if you want it that way, try this out and let me know if this works for you, i have not been able to test this very extensivly, because currently i have to f drive

oh ya, this was done with for v1.1
what you need to do is open up the bsXdash.xbe in any hex editor and go to the HEX offset 00002852 and change partition2 to partition6
save and close the file.

now open up BlackstormXCP.xbe with the hex editor. go to hex offset 00020C6A and change Partition2 to Partition6

now open open default.xip/default.xap and search for BlackstormXCP.xbe u need to change the line right above it; change PatcherPath = "\\Device\\Harddisk0\\Partition2"; to PatcherPath = "\\Device\\Harddisk0\\Partition6";
now open up default.xip/config.xap and repeat the same step as above

that should just about do it, hopefully it works 100% tongue.gif

isn't it also possible to put all the BSX stuff unedited on F:\ and boot via Xselect afterwards?

You wouldn't have to edit anything then, would you?

no, not possible. You could put the BSX xbe anywhere you want, but the other files have to go on the root of C:, if you dont edit them.

Hi tayior7,

Just one little question that may interest lots of people:

Will it be possible to launch the release 1.2 from C: or E: or F: partition ???

Thanks in advance

yeah, that's easy enough, but for now, the xbe can easily go in the root of F: as long as everything else is in the root of C:. changing and saving settings might work oddly, though.
