Last month I bought a brand new Xbox. I decided that I needed a Divx/Xvid player so instead of just buying a KISS DVDplayer I decided on this thing. Well I needed a modchip so I decided to wait on the X3.. have it pre-orderd and been waiting now........
Yesterday I got the urge to Softmod my xbox. I got somebody to help me a bit out but seems that he couldn't do a lot. Basically I got the following things:
- Xbox V1.4/1.5 (PAL and I got it with the PRGT2 and TopSpin package)
-PC with 2 NICs.. Crosscable
-none of the games with the save game exploit or something like that
So the only way to do this I figured was to swap de xbox HDD. I opened it up got the hdd out and began trying. My problem is that I won't go!
I got a pc with both SATA and IDE harddisks.. My primary disk with WinXP SP2 on it is the IDE one.. I tried it on the secondary ide as master and slave.. On the primary as slave.. but it's just not going. I tried it in windows, tried it when I was booting.. Only 2 times I got it to recognize the disk (when booting) but then my Windows would not load. In Winxp i'm having no luck at all. I'm doing it ppretty fast (switching the cables) but it's just not going . Anyone got some tips or something like that? I browsed like alll the tutorials on this forum but I only got more confused after that.. :S
Oh yeah I got K: 5713 and D:5659 if that helps ?
Any help would be much appreciated
*edit*: nevermind.. my pc doesn't seem to like the drive. just hangs when it detects it (in windows that is) or it won't boot if it detect it in the bios during booting (ntldr missing.. strange cause my main drive is set as primary so this makes no sense)...
maybe my bios just doesn't like it.. anyway. i'm not going to waste more time on this. just gonna wait till my X3 arrives
plz close this
