Ok, I'm about to scrounge around and see what I can find from my spare parts, hopefully I can rig up something that could boot that disk...
Ok, I really appreciate the help guys. I have a new drive plugged in and powered up, the way it was described in the post above, but I am having an issue with the xbox recognizing the drive.
It seems that the xbox only switches to "modded mode" after it has done it's POST and boot sequence. Once the dash comes up, the light turns orange. However, I can't get the xbox to boot up with the pc drive in place as I get error 12. I have tried "hotswapping" the cable after the xbox is up, and then inserted the disk into the drive, but after a short while, the pc drive activity light turns off, and the xbox doesn't recognize the drive.
I feel that I am so close to getting this thing to boot into SOMETHING, but nothing will work.
Edit: So I had a stroke of genious in the middle of typing this out and realized that I never tried the combination of the Hexen disk in the original xbox drive. I had been playing around with the potentiometers on the drive earlier so idk if that helped any (still won't boot mechassault) but it booted up hexen like a champ! I am using a projector at very close range right now close to my computer lol, so I will now take it back downstairs to a TV and finish up the process. Thanks a ton guys!
