I'm looking to put an xbox in my truck to run my music and some custom map apps. I'd like to remove the hard disk and dvd drive to save on space. I also don't see the hd lasting with the kinda of abuse my truck get's offroad.

Are there any bios's out there that will let you boot off of a usb key? Preferably something I can flash to the TSOP and not need a modchip.

im kind of looking to do the same thing...well, not BOOT from the USB, but to recognize an external USB drive in a Linux distro. i'll be curious to see any responses, but i think maybe xbox1 is pretty much a dying scene with attentions diverted to newer consoles....

In my experience, any xbox linux distro will automaticly recognize a USB drive. It is then your job to mount it on some distro's.

As for booting from the USB drive, you should look at the CROMWELL bios, although it won't boot xbox stuff. After the cromwell bios is loaded, you can only use the xbox as a pc... It will no longer be an xbox.
