Hi im new to the forum,can i just say what a great place it is.
Ihave a problem and i hope someone can help,Let me start off telling you where i am now and what i have done so far.I had a softmodded xbox with error code .7 .After reading on the forum that it was a hd problem
i checked all cables and connections (they were fine) i realised the hd was dead. I aso had no back up of the drive.
After some more reading i decided to hard mode it with a chip,so i put in a DuoX 2 GS Cromwell/FlashBios Edition and got a new hard drive. SEAGATE model..ST310014ACE. This being the first time i done anything like this i took my time with the soldering of the chip and board .Everything went well and after finishing the installation i had a red flashing light and the xbox boots to the XBOX LINUX CROMWELL BIOS 2.32 screen.
I can go no further then this because the cromwell bois 2.32 can not detect the dvdrom or the harddrive.I have a bios cd ready the Xecuter 4981.06 and the Eurasia Generic Pro Flash Disc 1.2. but they can not be read by the drive.
i am unshure what to do next any help would be apprieated.....Thanks

maybe its just the IDE. it might not be the cable. check the bottom of the mobo and the DVD drive pins where the IDE goes into maybe a pin is broken. there is a number of posible reasons why the xbox wont detect the DVD drive and the HD.
