Hi guys,

took out my old xbox and was surprised it actually works. anyway i was previously using evolutionX and i think it's pretty outdated, plus it does not work very well - most games don't run, they just simply hanged.

Anyway, I would like to do a clean install of the dashboard and wipe out everything clean. How should I go about doing it?

I vaguely remembered that my xbit is flashed with certain bios, so my questions are as follows:-

1) any installer disc for xbox to wipe out the previous content and install a fresh copy;
2) What bios do I need to install, and how do I find out the bios currently installed on xbit;
3) I think my hard drive is a 120GB - what's the maximum I can go to;

I intend to pass this set to my nephew who is very interested in xbox and not wii. So would appreciate help from fellow forumers.

Thanks in advance! smile.gif

If your dashboard is Evox, and your chip is Xbit, why have you posted in the UnleashX section?

1. HeXEn (Google Heimdall's Xbox Engineering Disc), or Slayers, or AID
2. Depends on your Xbox version, but one of the two X2.5035 variants would be ideal. BIOS Checker can help you find out what's on there. However, to program the Xbit you need to connect it to your PC via USB and a separate Xbit-specific USB programmer board, so none of the boot discs will help you. Have a look at this table and these pictures.
3. 2TB with a SATA-IDE adapter, but only some adapters work on an Xbox.

Just one thing to add..

your bios needs LBA48 support to be able to utilize larger hard disks. your 120gb is right under the limit so it cant be used to tell us if your bios is lba48 enabled..
i dont know enough about the xbit to tell you anything about it though.

the later x2 bioses will support LBA48, the latest IND bios, and the m8 bioses on hexen disk spport it as well..

I think..
and im sure some one els can correct me on this..
But xbpartitioner should tell you what level lba48 support you have..
LBA48 0 Is not going to be good enough.. so if you look in xbpartitioner and it says on the top "lba48 0" you will need a more up to date bios.
