1.) Can I just use a wire attatched to the metal shielding inside the xbox case to my computer case, OR can I just attatch a computer power thing (like the one in the back of ur computer hard drive) I got 1 hanging around...
Yes you can either run a ground wire between the xbox & pc, or you can use the PC's power connector (4 wire)
2.) Must it be the Primary IDE cable, or can I just use the one thats currently hooked up to my pc hard drive, I remember switching the cables around one day
... I was thinking I just pull the ide cable from my harddrive when I pause the BIOS and just use that one with the xboxhdm in my cdrom drive..
For XboxHDM tools to operate properly without modifications, you need to use the Primary Master Spot, That is the last connector on IDE0 port. The cdrom should be on Primary Master IDE1 Port.
3.) What is this about kernal and dash versions I read about? How do I get my version before I do this mod, I thought I read that you need a specific version or this mod will f--- up your drive...
Start your xbox, and go into settings, system info, and let it scroll, you will see a K: & D:, the K = kernal, and D = dash. UXE works on all xbox versions, so use that. It does take a little setting up, but read the documentation and you will be fine.
Please read all the tutorials before doing this. It can save you some headache down the line.
