What happens when a BIOS is deleted from an Xbox completely?

Where would I have to put a new BIOS for the Xbox to boot up a dash?

If the BIOS that came with ltools was in the E: drive of an Xbox, and then the entire E: drive gets deleted, what BIOS would I have to put in and where would I have to put it in to get it working again?

hahaha...ooohhh....you deleted a softmod bios. well you'd have to put a biosloader where it originally was (i think you'd have to get a biosloader, name the xbe as "default.xbe" and put it in a folder called "biosLD" on the E drive. you'd have to make sure that the BFM bios included was pointing to the right place to find your dashboard (E:\dashboard\default.xbe) in order to boot properly. you could use evtool to edit the BFM bios that comes with the bios loader.

or you could use nkpatcher instead. lots of tutorials around.

So since the whole E: was deleted, I'd have to make a folder in the E: name it 'biosLD' then add a BFM BIOS to it?
If so, can I put the original ltools one that was once on it?
Thanks in advance cmiz.

oh no....with a softmodded xbox, the retail bios gets replaced in memory off of the hard drive but your REAL bios never gets touched. you don't have to do anything with the bios. hotswap and replace your C drive with a retail C drive if you want to use Ltools....or just replace it with UXE complete.

So if he puts all the original files/folders back in the C: drive, the Xbox will boot to the MS Dash and not error 21?
Ah, I think I see what you mean. Since the original BIOS is looking for the original MS Dash, it can't find it because ltools renames it. Is this correct?
If it is, can I just rename one of the dashes to xboxdash.xbe?(It's original name.)
