When I try to boot Slax it hangs up on detecting usb devices, eventually it says "Cant access tty: job control turned off." My Bios detects the DVD drive fine.

Can anyone help? I've tried using multiple SATA ports on my motherboard and tried powering on my 360 at different times with no results.

My motherboard chipset is the Intel P45.

looking for data directory (searching for livecd.sgm file)

That is also part of the error I get.

Not sure if Slax is working correctly. Never saw that error before. Also, not sure if your chipset is compatible.

One thing I would try, for at least getting the drive in modeb is to use Podger's Modeb application that was recently created and in this forum.

Well if it isn't compatible with my chipset, if somehow I got it into modeb, would I be able to safely flash it? Also for podger's program how do I find out what port to use?

I would not use slax anymore, but thats just me, it is so much easier with Podgers Modeb_16. Slax is just a pain, having to turn the drive on at the right time and all.

To find the port:
(I guess the easiest way)
Install Iprep.
Run Iprep.
Click the question mark, and it will tell you the 4 digit port it is using (Mine for example is 9800).

Try that.

Also use modeb_16, because the windows version of it always seems to cause my machine to reboot.

Ok I've made a bootable flash drive with podger's ModeB_16 and tried the following commands

ModeB_16 EC00
ModeB_16 E800
ModeB_16 E880
ModeB_16 E480
ModeB_16 A000
ModeB_16 9c00

None have worked, am I doing something wrong?

Wow, thats alot of ports. No you are not doing anything wrong. Just try each one, not sure which controller or port you are plugged into.

Type the command, then after the . . . . . start showing up power on the drive.

I gave up and just ran down to radioshack and bought resistors to do the 2 wire trick, worked like a charm, got it flashed under Windows XP 32bit(had to install it because DOS and Vista 64bit both refused to do it)
