just install a dash..
easy enough to do now..
I recomend doing it as folows..
Download heimdalls xbox engineering disk. and burn it to dvd-r at 4x or slower.
then tell it to flash the mod chip's bios.. "probably needed updating any way so it gets full lba support"
depending on what version xbox you have either use the m8+ bios for 1.6 xboxes. or the 256k IND bios.. for 1.0-1.5
it will expand the 256k if you have a bigger bank.
(you may need to do some more rebuilding of the lpc if your not using a 1.0-1.4 though. 1.5 and 1.6 need extra soldering work)
any way when you flash a new bios, it will auto install the dash board for you.
you can use hexen "heimdalls xbox engineering disk" to access FTP and file explorer on your xbox.
then you can manually move dash board files to the hard disk.
because you are chipped hexen will boot from dvd "provided you used dvd-r burnt at 4x or slower"
you could also try clean install C partition after tsop flahs. BUT i think it will refuze to do that as you dont have any dashboard filoes for the mod chip already..
But YOU CAN do a fresh install hard disk which will install stock files to c wipe out e and replace it with basic files and dash files and give you a niceblank canvas to start from..
you may also want to use xbppartitioner "available directly form the hexen disk" to partition your hard disk. even if its stock you could get 2gb extra space.
id just tell it to flash a new bios.
and you have connected the D0 correct? cos if not then you wont be booting the chip.
and did you strap BT to pin 2, or ground.(prety much the same thing = chip always on)
or did you connect it some where els..
depending where you solderd bt to could need a diferent boot method to start the chip.
any way if you have any issues after trying that "like you cant boot the hexen dvd"
we will need to know exactly what version xbox you have.
where you solderd BT to..
and where you solderd D0 to.
