Anybody Know What Bios The Alladin Xt Needs For
Posted 20 January 2005 - 12:05 AM
Yes...I wanted to know if any of you guys know what bios the Alladin xt modchip needs to have for LBA 48 support...
I currently have a 160 gigabyte harddrive but it only displays 137....it's obviously that the modchip does not support the whole 149 gigs... I have the Alladin xt modchip...with slayer evox bios, 1.6 xbox version....
I heard that if one reflashed it with a certain bios,, it will support it...the problem is which one......
Has anybody done a re-flash for the case....(LBA 48 support)....? Do you do the reflashing under exoX screen?
Thanks in advance....

But what u should know is that u can setup the BIOS in two different way depending on how u want to use the rest of HD-space above the LBA48 limit.
The Option is that the F drive takes the rest OR that u get another partition called G
Use EVTool to change how you want your BIOS to behave.
But if u go with the "The rest to F" u would have to reformat your current F partition as it otherwise screws up the data...
If u don't want to backup/format your current data on F u should go with the G drive support as it means that u can keep the data on your disk without formatting.

From my experience, stick to Evox M8_1.6 bios for v1.6 (Samsung RAM) unless you are absolutely sure that your Aladdin XT contains updated CPLD code to suport Evox M8+ on v1.6b. Else you will encounter no boot (no video and sound) when powering up with the mod chip enabled.
This is one of the things that absolutely sucks for Aladdin XT - probably the only mod chip that can't work with Evox M8+_1.6 and v1.6b (may apply to v1.6 as well with the M8+ bios).
Use Evtool v1.06 to edit stock M8_1.6 bios to add LBA and IGR. Use Evtool v1.09 to edit M8+_1.6 bios.
Never use Xecuter2 4981 or 4983 on v1.6 / 1.6b. Xecuter3 bios is proprietary and so can't be used as well.
