So I have an XBOX v1.6b, I got it nearly free in the UK and took it back home (I live in Poland) and I wanted to softmod it. After some reaserch I knew that I couldn't do the TSOP exploit or whatever it's called so I tried doing the one with ndure 3.1 and xboxhdm 1.9, but I have Asus P5Q SE motherboard with only one PATA connector so xbrowser fails to start with dreaded "Linux CD not found" error. I was about to give up but then I found this -> http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?sho...650961&st=0
and tried doing that. Did the hotswap, was able to access hard drive with ease, done everything (but I guess I screwed up something 'cause it failed), put the hard drive back into XBOX, tried booting it and after XBOX startup logo the screen turned black and light on my XBOX flashes green/red. I had the C (partition 3) backed up so I tried hot swapping again and it worked (and still works, can access the hard drive) but the partition 4 just dissapeared. I backed up the C partition and now MS Dash loads up but when I try to play any (original) game it says that my XBOX needs service and game doesn't start. Also all my saved games and music is wiped out, obviously it was on partiton 4 which is now non-existant. So, with all that, this is a "virgin" XBOX and I have no eeprom.bin and xboxhdm 1.9 doesn't work with my computer, is there any way I could recreate the partiton 4 using Windows (7 Ultimate 64bit) or is my XBOX now rather useless? Thanks in advance and I hope the experts won't yell at me for anything, I'm just looking for help..
