About 5 days ago this harddrive (which is out of my xbox) decided to not work anymore, which was odd considering it was a refurbished xbox which i had just gotten this chirstmas. I attempted to fix it by various means, and im attempting to put an 80gb drive in there but stuff doesnt want to go my way.

XBOXHDM wont work with SATA cd drives (which is the only drive i have, and i dont have a floppy drive so i cant use the dos versions) so i cant create the partitions, Xebian wont boot and the kernel keeps panicking, i cant patch the kernel in my kubuntu installation so it can support fatx because i dont know the process when using patch.gz files as opposed to bz2 patches, for some reason my computer doesnt want to boot with 2 HDDs on the primary PATA connector (only have one), but yet it will boot fine with one or the other connected. all of this enraged me and i had to let out my anger (with a hammer laugh.gif) and this is the end result:

I'm impressed, I've beaten many many hard drives and never had one snap in half like that. Shoot some of the ones I've shot have came out better looking than that one haha.
