I am very new to the xbox mod scene, and several years late. I got an xbox recently and decided I wanted to make it a media center. I soft-modded it with no issues, and played around with that for a week or so.
Yesterday I got a larger (160) hard drive, and with xboxhdm, I set up the drive without any issues. I put it into my xbox (v1.6) and it works, but will only load into the ms dashboard. Before the HD swap it loaded into unleashx no problem. I put splinter cell back into it and went into unleash that way, but all I get to is change settings, remove softmod, reboot, and power off.
I tried to use hexen to correct it, but the xbox will not read anything but official xbox games. I tried CD-R, CD-RW, and DVD. I am stumped. Any help is greatly appreciated.
My question is, can I remove the softmod, reload it and still be ok? Will the xbox recognize the drive after I remove the softmod?
