I just built an XBOX HDD from scratch (already had old eeprom backup, and original NDure 3.1 DVD).
I somehow neglected to restore the C drive with NDure 3.1 through XBoxhdm (must have selected NDure files only), and now I have no MS Dash, XBL dash (or it appears, ANYTHING on the C drive). My previous softmod had a working MS-dash...
Are either of these at all necessary, as there is no longer any XBox Live for original XBox, and I don't know of any games that REQUIRE original MS Dashboard?!?
I have already installed and played all XBLA titles easily without anything on my C drive.
MY REAL QUESTION, is whether I can restore the NDure 3.1 C-backup files, while softmodded (using FTP didn't work at all). If it's just a matter of burning these to DVD, and copying from File Manager, I'm doing that tonight, otherwise, some help would be appreciated.
PS. The XBOX seems to be working perfectly fine with no Xbox dash, or Live dash!
PPS. I don't want to softmod it again, as there is 200GB to backup/restore. I just read about the cure for "frozen" drives, so I am less apprehensive now.
Cheers. Thanks for a fantastic XBOX resource.
