i just restored my xbox dashboard with slayers after messing it up. the dashboard came up fine, but when turned my chip off and "clicked" on the xbox live tab, my xbox FRAGs and i get error 21.
thanks in advance

21 is a general error with no specific cause... does it frag AND give an error? or does it give an error, then after restarting it, it frags or something?
is your hard drive locked, do you have the original dash still there? msdash.xbe (or whatever it's called) are you sure the original bios is still intact?

yes, it FRAGs, AND gives error 21 at the same time.
my hard drive is locked, original dash is still there (xboxdash.xbe), well, at least the new one that slayer gave me when i restored it. i changed my evox bios a while back to change the start order and increase fan speed, but i've never touched the normal xbox bios.

the xbox can't frag and give an error
fragging means there is no video, the eject light Flashes Red And Green..... if you are getting an error that means you aren't fragging

well, it's doing both, lol
i also noticed that the disc drive is powering up and down like it does when it's looking for a disc, or can't read one that is there.

well i dunno man
chances are it didn't copy the original msdash files onto the C drive properly and the xbox spazzes out when you try to access the live and all.... try reinstalling slayers
