And yes they are not big on responding. I hope you ordered a couple of them because in my experience one may work on your xbox and not work on another xbox.

Not sure if this help's but you have to be patient with the boot disc. Mine will sit their doing nothing for like 2 mins before it starts to boot it up.

I use 5035 where ever possible. Too large for 1.2 through to 1.5 TSOPs.
Do you know if you can use a 1TB sata with a debug setup??
and I know you can install a debug dash but can you flash the debug dash making it essentially a full out debug system?? or is that not how flashing works?

How much of the drive space is usable depends on the BIOS. In a "true" debug system, a 1tb drive will be mostly inaccessible without either reflashing the console or using the Phoenix BIOS Loader to get the system out of debug mode (assuming PBL can even function in the debug environment. Dunno if it can).
Dashboards are programs installed on the console's HDD. BIOSes are stored either in the motherboard's TSOP chip, or in a modchip. You flash BIOSes, you install dashboards.

and it worked like a charm. From start to finish was about 45 min (including burning time). I know that I'm way below the curve on this stuff, but I hope this is still of use to someone.
(PS I'm sure this method is listed on this forum somewhere, but this link is where my searching brought me first)

So much that I will probably buy another same or larger HDD for my other box that currently is swapped between 2 500 GB IDE drives.
When you can get it to fly, it really is nice.

I've read through just about every page, and it seems like there is finally some success to this, but i notice that pretty much everyone is using TSOP or a chip.
Is there any hope for this working on 100% softmods?
Well done to all involved, and thank you for your work.

XBPARTIONER WILL DO A 2TB HARD DRIVE THATS THE BIGGEST IVE DONE SO FAR
AND ON SOFT MODDED
I USED NDURE AND EVOX WITH XBMC AS THE DASHBOARD

I want to put a spare 500GB Western Digital SATA I HDD in my 1.6 XBox (DuoX2 with X2 5035 bios).
So I bought a SATA -> IDE Adapter that was confirmed to work here.
It's this one: http://img709.images...21/22000189.jpg
Put everything together. Startup was slow and after a few tries AID 4.50 managed to boot and formatted the HDD successfully. Copied XBMC to the HDD, rebooted.
Now it either shows error 13 or loads the dashboard 'frame by frame'.
It takes like 5 minutes for the boot screen to slowly fade away and for parts of the dashboard to appear.
AID shows cryptic symbols in it's message boxes too.
I thought this is probably the fault of the adapter. So I ordered the Deal Extreme one: http://img23.imagesh...ealextremem.jpg
But it shows exactly the same behavior. Master and Cable Select jumper setting made no difference (Slave didn't boot at all).
Also a 80pin IDE cable and an external power supply didn't help either.
