if it can't cold boot orignal games then the DVD drive must have died
the softmod is not active with a cold boot
I've considered that possibility but it seems like a pretty wild coincidence that my drive would completely stop working at the exact moment that I installed a new operating system.
As well, what does "the softmod is not active with a cold boot" mean? When I boot up with the eject button it still loads XBMC or Unleash, not the default MS Dash. Could that be part of the problem?
Thanks for the help
Edit: Hmm... so I just tried something different... I hit eject to turn on the xbox, and then quickly put in Halo and closed the tray. Halo loaded up fine, so I can say for sure that it's not a hardware failure.This post has been edited by SeanLazer: Feb 5 2007, 06:50 AM
