Chimp will work from XBMC.
Seemed to just load to a black screen with a small text banner about the makers and then sit there doing nothing.. :/
If your softmod has shadow C then you have to bypass shadow C before you FTP the files from the Xbox. If you don't then you get the stock MS Dash, as you have found.
Will bear in mind!
You have to put the eeprom in the right place (/linux/eeprom/eeprom.bin), and the file name has to be lower case. The xboxhdm instructions on this are absolutely crystal clear.
I got a little confused as all the files on the iso, when i checked in winrar, seemed to be uppercase - it was only later that I found a case oddity when looking at it in linux
Have a look at the link in my signature - Build a new softmod disk with eeprom - for an overview of building a clean new softmod disk.
Alternatively, instead of xboxhdm, use the lxhdm implementation on HeXEn (Google Heimdall's Xbox Engineering Disc).
reading now and will defo check them out. thanks for nthe help! Incidentally I got this hard disk going (for benefit of others who may ever read this thread and have the same problems as i did) by:
connecting the original xbox hd to the xbox, pulling the cdrom ide, letting the xbox boot to error 12 so it had unlocked the HD, then carefully unplugged the ide
boot the pc, get past POST, then conenct original xbox hd plus new had to same cable, both on cable select, and booting xboxhdm in mode 1 and choosing the CLONE option, cloning the orignal onto the new
I had to do it nlike that because I could not get the original hd to unlock on the PC; it just gave readerrors while xboxhdm was booting and the unlock tool said no hd was connected
so all in all, a bloody massive faff and definitely looking forward to the links in your sign being easier; this has taken so long I actually wished I'd just paid some reliable member of the forum to image me a modded drive and ship it to me - it would have been cheaper than spending 5 hours last night messing with it and having a row with the other half about coming to bed at 2am after ignoring her all night. hah :/
