New Hard Drive Prob's - Sort Of...
Posted 11 March 2003 - 04:03 PM
a little help please,
i have just installed a new drive in my xbox (western digital 40gig), i followed the tutorial found on the xbox-scene and everything went fine, in fact i would say the instructions made it a doddle , however, now when i boot from the mod chip (executor lite) everything is ok - no problems but when i turn it off and boot to the original dash i get the service warning screen and that it, is there a way round this or is this the price of having a larger drive installed.
by the way the only reason i want to boot from the original dash is to use the remote when playing DVD's.
great site by the way.........

1) Hard drive must be locked, use ConfigMagic (Note: some WDs can't be locked).
2) xboxdash.xbe must be the original Xbox dash.
You can use the original DVD player with a mod. If your using EvoX, just point the DVD Player option to the original xboxdash.xbe.

got the original dash backed up and as for config magic not sure how to use, a bit scary with all the setting, is it just a case of scrolling to the option that says lock hard drive ? or is there more to it. do you know if there is a user guide or something somewhere ?
as for the dvd where is the setting you suggested and will this work with region 1 & 2 discs.
