what do you mean, load and execute from ram? Every xbe is loaded in ram before it is executed. Even the bios is loaded and decoded in ram.
The xbox hardware has a lot of resemblance with a pc. So, you can access it's ide interface even without the use of the bios. It's a very easy way to read or write a sector to and from the disk. It is just a slow method. You can find some examples in the liveinfo v3 source code. Apparently, that program was designed to run on pc and on xbox. The xbox routines are still in the source.

Thanks for your answer, well Im trying to do a XBE menu with some embledded XBE ( all 1 single xbe ) and acording to selection on menu, launch one of the included xbe. I have done this on ps2 but I cannt find an equivalent function on any xbox sdk available.

About reading sector, I mean DVD sector, just checked live info v3 source but its all about hdd basically.

I hope you get me , my english sucks smile.gif

Unless you can find a better way, you'll probably just have to extract the xbe from the xbe to cache and run it from there.
