Can't Launch Anything From Evox
Posted 04 August 2005 - 12:54 AM
Using the original hard drive, Evox worked perfectly. I want to copy games to my hard drive so I don't have to tote them around lose them. Well, I popped in my DOA3 DVD, and lo and behold I had almost no disk space left afterwards. Given the need for more hard drive space, I went to my shelf and pulled a Western Digital 120GB drive. I know those aren't lockable, but I don't play xbox live, so I don't care. I plug in the HDD and boot my EvoX CDRW. Evolution comes up with no problems. I fire up FileZilla and go through and format the partitions. I transfer my HDD backup (bone stock MS) plus the evolutionX and dvd2xbox program.
When I ejected the CDRW and rebooted, evox came up like normal. When I tried to launch dvd2xbox (which worked before) all I got was a black screen with a green swirl and evolution X printed in the middle. When I rebooted and tried to launch a game DVD (Halo and DOA3), I got similar behavior. Pressing the eject button reboots the box. It hangs there permanently until I do something to stop it.
So I thought I formatted the drive improperly, and fired up the gentoox CD, and had it format the drive. When gentoox was finished installing, it booted up OK (except for a bad X configuration that garbled the screen, but I'm sure I can fix that). Apparently gentoox works fine on my hard drive, though I can't launch anything from EvoX.
Forgive me if this is a common problem, but I swear I searched. Maybe my search abilities suck, but I beg mercy and guidance. Thank you.

That said, I'm not stuck up enough not to take the advice and try it.

Letting slayer do its full install didn't work either.
