I just bought an xbox (the price drop justified it) and i have a couple of quick questions im hoping someone can answer in a sentence or two......
I ended up with a 360 manufactured in 9-5-08 with a hitachi drive....i heard from a friend that this is the drive to have for a no modchip solution...correct? Or are there different revisions of it?
also, i have and old school ide computer. do i need sata on the motherboard? if yes, is a modchip my only solution.
Thank You for the read and hopefully the response

A 360 manufactured in May 08 will most definitely have a v79 drive in there, meaning you'll need a SATA chipset, a copy of the modified Slax 2.1 distribution and the special v79 disc / instructions here.
If you've never flashed a drive before, don't make this the first one you do - kill the drive before retrieving the DVD key and you'll need a completely new 360.

better yet, would you do it? is the chance of bricking it come down to wrong syntax in linux. i know its not a black and white question, just need someones personal opinion. bricking it would suck.......
i see from the link what it does. thanks. that is all i needed.

Look up Textbook 360 for a great tutorial.
Read everything through as many times as you need until you feel confertable.
If even after that you are too scared of bricking your 360 then maybe it would be best not to mod your console at all. Remember there is always a risk making something do what it was never meant to do. This is a VERY small risk but to some that risk is just too high. If that is a case for you then it best not to take the risk.

Just to clear it up, once dissasembled the label on the drive will let me know what im up against, right? as far as which hitachi it is.
