I have been out of the scene for a while, but getting back in it, my bios is out of date (X2 4977) I am trying to upgrade to X2 4983 (I am assuming this will be the best bios to get, or at least will give me all the features that I will need).
I have a 1.0 Xbox TSOP that I am flashing, so in the X2 kit, I made a 1MB bios.
Now I cannot figure out how do get it flashed. I remember years ago when upgrading to 4977 I used evox and just put the bios in c:/bios/bios.bin and let it upgrade and it worked fine. Now when I go to that option in evox, the bios is not there.
I have also tried the Eurasia Flasher Tool. The problem with this method is that I have a bad DVD drive, so I have a PC DVD drive hooked up to the Xbox that I play my games on, when I go to insert the second disc in with the bios I want to flash, the Xbox will not recognize the disc, and the Xbox DVD Drive is so bad that it will not even boot it in the first place.
I looked into Config Magic, but all I could figure out was to get my EEPROM flashed, which I do not believe that I want to do.
Can someone please help me out, I am kind of stumped on where to go from here.
Also, if any of the info I said is incorrect please let me know (i.e. 1.0 TSOPs do use a 1MB bios right?)
