I have a ms25 born feb 06 and have flashed it many times with the newest firmwares. I put in 4.0 a couple of weeks ago and it runs without a problem. I recently wanted to try to flash it the new 4.2. Keep in mind I have an Nforce4 mobo that I am using a NF4 MTKFLASH with. Nevertheless, I use a floppy and this is exactly what I do:
1. Turn on PC and have it boot to DOS with bootable floppy that has the proper mtkflash and firmware on it.
2. Turn on 360.
3. After about 10 seconds I put in the 0800 dvd+R DL, wait about 20 seconds eject it and close tray.
4. Type in mtkflash w /m xtrem42a.bin
5. Asks me what drive I would like to choose and it only lists NF4 SATA PRIMARY or SLAVE. Whichever one I pick it will hang on Port: 9eO Mster/Slave: a0 and will not do anything until I hit escape in which it says
status=00 should be 70.
I have interchanged steps 3 and 4 also and have still gotten the same results. Could it be that after I flashed to 4.0, which if I am not wrong, makes my drive a ms28, my sata no longer recoginzes the drive and will only work if I have a sata with the VIA chipset??? Like I said before, I have not had any problems before 4.0.
Any feedback would be appreciated.....Thank you.
