Big Thanks to X-box Scene and its contributors for all the help and tutorials I've used over the past few years!
I'm trying to replace my 120GB Seagate HD with a new 250GB Maxtor HD.
It's an old 1.0 Xbox with an old Matrix modchip. The bios is Evox M7ej.
When I replace the HD and reboot the system, I get the "System requires service error" in green text in multiple languages. I also hear a repeating clicking noise coming from the HD just prior to the error appearing on screen.
I immediately thought that I may have to upgrade the bios, but after reading the forums and tutorials, I'm not sure.
Now I'm thinking that I may have to buy a newer chip, but I thought I would ask for advice from those more knowledgable prior to making this investment.
I think I've supplied all of the pertinant info.
Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
