SCAN C IS ALLIVVVEEEE!
We thought of getting winxpe run on xbox since it doesnt give a SHIT what it rusn on (16 meg flash chips , need i say more?)
Problem is the boot loader only which we need a coder to right.
My suggestion to you Scan-C is to go through the WHOLE 18 something pages of the thread and refresh your head and see whats currently going on.
***BIG OL SIGH***
Once again its XP EMBEDDED THAT DONT CARE.
PE or PRE-INSTALL ENVIRONMENT last i heard, and im sure im correct is a PC HARDWARE based , BIOS contingent IT Proffesion's tool to prep a system for an XP install. If you dont know then go grab Super WinPE its a knoppix style cd bootable os. all its designed to do is get you into a failed XP or other NTFS system. or run from a system without windows on it so you can format and partition drives or recover data.
Embedded is the only one,, just like CE Embedded, and 98 Embedded, and Tablet Embedded that does not care about hardware.
do not confuse the 2. they are 2 VERY different things.
Embedded Preview is free go download it,, and install it on your system. (it dont install windows on your PC it installs the tools you need to create an install image.)
hell i cant believe someone with windows programming knowledge who also knows some xbox tricks hasnt tried it yet. all you need is the drivers for the xbox audio, video and motherbaord, ethernet. oh controllers too
Mouse and Keyboard would be included in the USB support of the OS and making sure legacy USB Device support is enabeld so it can see a mouse and keyboard on the usb controller port, since thats all the xbox controllers are , are usb ports.
