Is there any way to figure out what soft mode was used?
I found unleashx on the memory card and 2 xbmc installs.
It still has the original 8 gig drive in it. With data on e: and q:. I really don't know which one is xbmc.
I have more questions but I would appreciate it if someone could help me out.

ftp your new xbmc files over to a folder like e:\apps\xbmcnew
run the default.xbe from within your current xbmc dash and carefully check that everything is working properly.
take a look at the shortcut provided with xbmc. You can launch your new dashboard with it.
Change your startup xbe to the shortcut one. Don't forget the cfg file that the shortcut needs. Upon next reboot, your new xbmc should come up.
If you mess things up, it is possible that your dashboard refuses to start. In that case, you wan't be able to ftp to the xbox either. So, backup your xbox eeprom (eeprom.bin file) before you start experimenting.
ftp the file to your pc. If it sits on your locked xbox harddisk, it is useless.
Check your system for a shadowc. If you see no sign of a softmod on your c partition, you will have a shadowc enabled. You will probably need to install a fresh M$dash on that shadowc to get rid of the error 21.
You can extract the needed files from a Slayers xiso.

the ndure softmod uses a couple of tricks to protect the softmod.
1. It installs a shadowc. This is a file on the real C or E partition that acts as a disk partition. If a game tries to update the xbox dash, it will update the dash on that shadowc and the softmod will stay intact.
2. You still can boot the xbox with a game in the dvd. In that case, the softmod isn't activated, and the dash can still be modded. To protect against that, the softmod uses a couple of filler files to fill up the c partition. Since there is no more free space on that partition, an attempt to alter the dashboard will fail.
You can disable the shadowc with a file called shadowC_off.bin. You need to ftp it to the E:\NKP11 or to the root of E:\. The contents of the file don't matter. The softmod just checks for it's existence.
The boot order of dashboards depends upon the nkpatcher. That program should be somewhere on the C partition. Mine is in the c:\bios folder. I think I used a hexeditor on that file to locate the dashboard. It is something like \\partition6\dash\default.xbe....
The filler files can be removed on the C partition. They are in the shadowc folder. Don't remove the shadowc.img file which is what the name says.
