Tried Using 3 'boot' Discs, Dire Need Of Help
Posted 22 August 2005 - 02:06 PM
I have scoured over these and other forums for hours. I have made 3 'boot' discs, one with just evo x on it,the other using Slayers boot disc, and another random one i found in another language (something like french).
However all just give me the dirty disc error.
What happened was that I had been using Evo X for some time on a hard modded xbox with no problems at all, but I wanted to change to UnleashX because others had said it was better.
So I grabbed a copy of it, and put it in C, renaming default.xbe to unleashxdash.xbe (after removing all evo x folders and .xbe's)
Except now my xbox only boots to the ms dash.
So now I'm thinking instead of renaming unleashX's xbe to unleashxdash, i should have renamed it evoxdash.xbe and everything would have been fine? Am i right?
Also, any ideas why the boot discs arent working? I've burnt many a game before with no problems so yeah.
Noob I suppose, but not one of the worst around (I hope...) Any help would very much be appreciated

If you get DDEs with games your DVD drive could be dying. Or maybe just needing a cleaning
The Thompson drives from the 1.0 boxes are pretty terrible (that's what I've got). The best way to get a boot disc for a Thompson is to use a Ritek G04 DVD-R. But you should be able to get away with a nice, new CD-RW if you have a Samsung or Panasonic. Be sure to burn them right. There are plenty of tutorials that go into the details.
Also, be sure to read the "Noob guide to everything". It doesn't have a lot of details but it links to a huge amount of pretty essential knowledge. Good luck!

Maybe I just need to try a different brand, although I've used the ones I have now before.
What about the dummy file, how much space should be used up on the DVD before burning it?
