well first off I think you need to read more of the tutorials.. but

you have ICH5 chipset.. INTEL so right there you NEVER need a modified mtkflash because it supports INTEL CHIPSETS. I TOO have ICH5 and can flash everything perfect.

so.. you have not said what version dvd drive you have ms28 or ms25.

It makes a big difference.
If you have ms25 you can flash this drive very easily with a bootdisk with mtkflash on it.

if you have ms28 you CANNOT flash this drive UNLESS you do the VCC method which requires soldering and removing a resistor from the dvd drive ciruit board and installing a switch (I can do this method it works fine)
IF you DO NOT want to perform this method.. then you HAVE to purchase a via 6421 chipset sata card. You can find links to it on the forums.

now about booting and getting an error.

Your bios MUST be in native mode.. not raid or anything else..
You have to make a good bootable floppy.
To me it sounds like either your floppy drive is not working.. or your bootable floppy is missing files or corrupted.

Then insert a default mtkflash both the exe and the typ file to the bootable floppy.

if your computer is not booting to a bootable floppy and gets you to a .. A: dos prompt then your computer is having issues right there... or it is your floppy.

turn on 360...
turn on pc....with bootdisk...
at dos prompt type mtkflash r /m orig.bin
choose what port your dvd drive is on...

and thats all you should have to do. IF it is ms25.

OH YEAh you should not be booting to c:\windows\command\com
if your boot disk is made in xp (right clicking on A: then format...then create boot disk check box) it will boot dos and put you at a dos prompt of A:
