he forgot about this.. but turns out hes got a 160gb hdd in it. i know he'll want it back. so i backed up his eeprom, got a hold of an old 10gb hdd from someone, and used xboxhdm 1.9 to build a drive. the problem is, this drive cannot be locked.
its the only extra drive we can find!
so i put the drive in the xbox, and with the chip, everything boots fine to the ms dash. (the chip must have a bios that supports unlocked drives). i can boot a evox dvd and ftp. so i tried softmodding with krayzies ntsc ndure sc installer 1.0, and 1.1. for both, everthing seemed fine until the part where it says to press ok to power off, take out the game, power on to continue. after i restart the xbox, it says 'xbox' then goes to a black screen, and the ring is orange.
it does this everytime. and so i have to use xboxhdm to rebuild the drive again, and try again. i also tried
ndure 3.1, where you do everything on the pc and then ftp the created files to the xbox. same result with the blank screen and orange light.
so.. is this because the drive is unlocked? or because there is still a modchip in the xbox?
is there a way to use a softmod bios that supports unlocked drives?
or is it something else im missing? im sorry for the lengthy post. id really appreciate a hand here. thanks.
