Is it burned to disc and just not loading? Could simply be the DVD media if so; it's recommended to use DVD-R.
First thing I'd do is get the most up-to-date version of AID available and use that in preference to anything older. When running correctly it should give you the option of installing whatever main dash you want from its Dash menu options. Avalaunch is one of the options my AID 4.4 disc has so I'd assume they same applies to other versions as well.
BTW AID on disc or even installed on HDD takes a long time to load, typically 30 - 45 seconds.
I'm sure others here will recommend you use Hexen instead of AID. If you don't know what Hexen is search the forums here and you'll soon find out. It will do or can be used to do what you want.
To install any alternative main dash it, or a shortcut, has to be wherever your existing main dash is located, this should be the E:|drive in the case of SID. Essentially it just a question of replacing the existing main dash .xbe with that of the new dash or a shortcut to it. But it is potentially dangerous to start messing around with your main dash unless you know what you're doing. So you must research the appropriate tutorials before proceeding.

I think i get the kist of it now. I'm going to just start fresh. Fomatting all the drive and will rebuid it to factory and go from there. I'm going to try what fallenangle suggested. The sad part is... i've done about 25 of these years ago and just forgot it all. Also i was using a chip, new to this softmodding crap. I'll post back shortly.
Thanx for the advice guys.

If you have E:\Dash\ then you are (or have at some point) installed Kingroach NDURE 3.1
So, what exactly are you trying to achieve - a chipped Xbox, or a softmodded one?

Ok, i just tried to set it up and no luck. This is what i did..... step by step
1. installed the softmod using 007.
2. Booted the aid disc and went to the dashboard section and pick softmod e:/ installed avalaunch.
(when i rebooted evox came up and not avalaunch)
3. ftp'd into the xbox and renamed the *evoxdash.xbe file in root E: to *default.xbe and put it into the E:/dashboard/ folder, overwriting the one that was there
4. avalaunch came up on reboot but the resolution seems all messed up.
The last time i did this my avalaunch didnt look like this. It had the colorful screen and not this grey screen im seeing now. I think my problem is i'm not installing the avalaunch from the right spot in aid. Do i click 1 click softmod in stall? do i install the dash from the dashboard section? Do i install a regular dash or softmodded dash? I rember seeing that i have to uninstall virtual C first, then i saw somewhere that if im using sid 5 that im supposed to pick regular dash and not softmodded dash! I'm so cunfused lol. I jst wish i could remember how i did this the last time i modded these old units.
Hope you guys can help me figure out the right steps, thanx.
P.S. it's E:/dashboard and not E:/dash, my bad.
