Just found a thread that basically said the same - was really hoping to run xbmc as the frontend - don't care about games - but wanted to play the avis,mp3s being stored locally.
Also I wanted the quickbootup that xbmc has.I played around with a linux distro a while back and was not impressed with the boot time.
I don't mind changing the Bios to something else (so long as it plays xbmc and avis) if it will let me have 2 drives simultaenously or were you refering to the cromwell (linux) bios? If I can have a bios that runs only homebrew (xbmc) that's fine - if so which Bios?.
Thnks for info - i considered it but not too sure if its the way to go for me since I wanted xbmc functionality.Still I could flash the onboard TSOP with both M8+ (and fit a switch) and the Cromwell (Linux) bios and reboot depending on what I needed - but will the cromwell bios see the FatX partitions? (i.e. both drives)
Also let us know how you get on with whatever linux distro you use
So maybe the only solution is to slap the two 250g on to a raid card into my PC and go out and buy a 400g for the xbox
Thanks again guys
