So I picked up a v1.4 xbox the other day that had been softmodded using a SID disc. I backed up the EEPROM from it and used the same files(slayers c drive) I've used on a pile of other xboxs (with the new eeprom obviously) to build a new drive. Everything seemed to go OK (built new drive from scratch, applied ndure, locked HD) till I plugged in the new HD to the xbox and it booted to a black screen. Showed flubber and M$ then goes blank/black LED remains green. Tried hexen boot disc: same black screen green led.
If I plug the stock soft modded HD in it works fine. With hexen(on the stock softmodded hd) the led goes from green to amber to red and boots hexen.
So, since I have other softmodded xbox's available, I was wanting to know the shortest route to get this working...
1) can I just build a new xboxhdm using the true (not shadow) C files off of a working softmod and call it a day? (skipping the install ndure part as it is already installed)
2) Should I just rerun the existing xbhdm, and rebuild it all over (assuming the process just failed for some reason)
3) am I missing something obvious?
Every other xbox I've used this on had the 5838 dash (from the slayers disc) and have all been v1.6. (Not sure if its relevant, just attempting to be thorough)
