Firstly might I say how impressed I am with this community is still so active, having been an xbox enthusiast for the last decade of my life Im happy to see people are still as fond of them as I am
I have been stumbling through these forums over the last 48 hours to figure out how to use the hotswap exploit to softmod my original xbox (with stock hdd), after a very late night last night (and lots of rough handling of IDE cables) I was very proud to have succesfully completed that task using ndure 3.0 and xplorer360 to install the evox dash.
Despite seeing posts warning against this, I loaded an old slayers auto installer disc (2.7) into the console and proceeded to unlock the hdd so I could drag and drop roms and utilities onto the harddrive (in hindsight It would have been better to FTP!!)
Now I am unable to boot to the dashboard with my error 05, having read through various threads on this site and others I have tried to reformat or lock the drive with xboxHDM (which doesn't seem to recognise the drive - no disk drive found on /dev/hda (primary master)!
After accidentally formatting my windows HDD using xboxhdm, I am seeking your help, I am still very willing to restore this xbox to working condition
Edit: I will keep looking through threads from people with similar problems
Edit: I have tried disabling IDE auto detect (intel P35 chipset)
Edit: I have tried setting jumper cable to master
Please let me know if theres more information that I can provide, I am really strugglingThis post has been edited by dockwork: Sep 16 2012, 01:42 PM
