Hi all,

A friend gave me his XBOX v1.0 (TSOP flashed) and a 200GB blank hard-drive.
I cloned my hard drive and locked the new hard drive with the other xbox's eeprom.

The main .xbe being executed on the TSOP xbox is C:\xboxdash.xbe so I renamed and replaced that one with the XBMC .xbe and put the xbmc xml file in the C: too.

Now when I power on the xbox, I get an error saying there was a problem with the <HOME> tag and XBMC could not load, it does give me FTP access to the xbox.
When I FTP into the xbox the F: is missing (this is where XBMC is located F:\Apps\XBMC\ )
The F: is there but it is not being seen..
There is no error in the xml file, I am 100% sure about it.
Anyone know what I should be doing to get this to work?

Thanks in advance

Seany

Start by reading the PINNED TOPICS.

It might hold the answer to an uncommen question as howto set XBMC as the dash...

Why would you lock the hdd?!
And why do it with the other xbox´s eeprom.

Unlock the drive there and try again....

That is not the problem,

I cloned my 200gb hard drive (unlocked state) with the blank one obviously.

I then got the eeprom from the TSOP flashed xbox and locked one of the hd's with that eeprom.

I completely understand the concept of eeprom, locking/unlocking..

F: is missing still, any idea why?

here's teh xbmc.log :

Try and upgrade your XBMC version. You are a couple of months behind.

Then try again.

Also, what does your <home> tag look like? Also, boot in debug mode. Either hold down X+Y while XBMC is booting or set <loglevel>0</loglevel> in XML.
