I have an X3 on a v1.0 xbox, and I installed Evox, etc. from Slayer's, since I can't FTP right now. boXplorer and my cheap DVD+Rs are my new best friends, since the Thompson seems to read any DVD+R I throw at it.
I read this thread
and managed to get Evox to recognize UIX properly, and it runs fine from Evox. When setting it to run as the main dash (ie, renaming it to evoxdash.xbe where my evox install was [C:\] and letting the Xecuter bios run this when I reboot to dash), it boots up normally.
Unfortunately, if I select Apps, Emulators, or anything under hard drive, it reboots to the X3 bios. My apps are installed in e:\apps and my emulators in e:\apps\emulators, as per the Slayer's install. If UIX scans the drives, shouldn't it find those paths? Even when I input the specific path (E:\apps\emulators\) it gets pissed and reboots. Is this a common occurence, and does anyone know what I should do to avoid it?
Booting it from EvoX sucks, since it means I have evox kicking around, mostly just as an extra step. I liked the original Xbox dash, and I really like the fact that UIX sticks to the original theme, so I'm all about using it as my single dash replacement for non-Live stuff.
