This is my first post here, though I did do Google searches and searched the forum a bit to try to find the answer. My problem is that having my network cable plugged in seems to stop any dashboard from loading on my softmodded Xbox. Here are the steps that I followed to get here:
1) Krayzie's SC exploit....Xbox with original hard drive works fine.
2) FTP'ed eeprom files over to PC
3) Used xboxhdm tools and NDURE to make an install CD
4) Used CD to install onto a larger hard drive.
5) Installed new, larger hard drive into Xbox.
At this point, I was able to set my static IP address and FTP things to/from my PC and the Xbox. This was under UnleashX. I really wanted to use XBMC as I had before, so I FTP'ed that over to the E:\dash folder. There is also an E:\Dashboard folder that has UnleashX in it.
Now, the Xbox won't get past the official, green Xbox logo while the network cable is plugged in. If I remove it and restart (cold reboot) the system, it loads the dashboard fine (either UnleashX or XBMC, depending on which is in E:\dash).
Any ideas how I can fix this? The user "dr.no" refers to a similar problem in an old post, but I couldn't track down any thread specifically focused on the network cable/startup problem:http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?sho...ghlight=startup
Any help would be great!
