Linux/fatx Dual Boot
Posted 24 April 2009 - 05:54 AM
i'm an avid TSOP installer and mod chip installer but I've never dwelled into the linux side.
I'm thinking about taking the DVD drive out of the xbox and throwing in a 2nd HDD in there.
Now what I'm wanting to do is have the FATX drive (upgraded to 80gig) as one and Linux partition on the other physical drive.
I was going to install a switch to kill the power between each drive so only one drive boots up at a time but from what I understand you'd have to split the onboard BIOS (v1.1) also and put it on the switch so that linux BIOS can load.
Am I correct so far? or wayy off?

So by flashing the 'other' BIOS do you mean the BIOs that supports FATX or Linux?
I've been able to boot up the FATX OS without a DVD drive and it works a treat so I'm asuming your referring the the linux CROMWELL BIOS ?

If you have an xbox with a large tsop and you add the switch it will basically split the chip into two giving you two bios slots, flash one with the cromwell bios, when done flick the switch and flash the other with an xbox bios. i think you are understanding this already.
