Locking The Hard Drive
Posted 11 January 2006 - 09:00 PM
I would like to use Xbox Live. However, my version of EvolutionX does not have the command/ability to lock the hard drive. BUT, one of the other dashboards that came with the system does. I believe the name of teh dashboard is called AVALAUNCH or something like that.
My question is: If I lock my hard drive, does the system boot to the MS dashboard? And if it does, how do I go about getting back to my Avalaunch dashboard so that I can unlock my hard drive?

When you boot with chip enabled it will boot to evox/avalaunch etc irrespective of hdd being locked or not!
To play xbox live boot to m$ dashboard with chip disabled

It all depends on the way your C drive is setup, but if you lock the drive and disable the mod (via what ever means your chip allows) boot the stock bios and see what dashboard comes up.

I do though have some follow-up questions.
1) How do I go about turning off the mod chip? Is there a setting in the EvolutionX dashboard that allows me to do this? If I understand correctly, the mod chip has to be turned off, along with the hard drive locked, for me to access MS Live.
2) If I do somehow manage to turn off the mod chip, and the XBox boots to the MS Dash, how do I go about turning the mod chip back on again? Assuming of course that with the mod chip turned off, I will be unable to get back to the EvolutionX / Avalaunch dashboard.
3) How do I know if the stock MS Dash is on my hard drive? What files (and in what partition) should I be looking for.
Thanks again for your help. I'm S-L-O-W-L-Y starting to learn some of this, but it is a steep hill to climb!
