I have a 1.0 mb that I need to get the eeprom off of so I can throw a new HDD in it and tsop the box. THe LPC holes are soldered (of course) and I didn't feel like de-soldering them so I figured I'd get a matrix (they're cheap enough).

So I got the chip and programmer and programmed it/aligned it correctly with the solid green light and I have the dip switches correctly switched so that the bios should load off hte chip and the xbox should boot into the modded state.

Well it doesnt. I get a darn error 16. I'm using a clean hdd (no files on it at all) but I have my evox boot cdrw in the dvd rom. I've tried two different dvdroms (samsung/phillips) and it seems as though the disk is being recognized (spinning etc...) but I still get an error 16?! WTF!

I have used this evox boot disk on several xboxs and it works fine (as far as booting to the disk goes). Does the matrix not recognzie this or what? ITs starting to piss me off. I've tried using both the evox 2.5 bios and the latest xecuter 256k bios, neither work. ALWAYS error 16.

any advise?

you get err 16 when xbox lost track of date and time... and cant find MS dashboard to show you the clock setting..

put in your old HDD and set date and time.. then you have aprox 2 h to install the new blank HDD.. (the first thing to do is installing a MS-dashoard

If your old HDD is broken flash your matrix with a bios that have err 16 fix

And.. to flash TSOP you have to boot from TSOP ... to flash LPC you have to boot from LPC
