im not sure it is possible. unless your pc dvd-rom is a modded sammy 616t. when you made your evox xbox iso, you essetially made an original (minus the signature an whatnot). since pc dvd-roms cant play originals, i doubt itll boot your evox cd.
your best bet is to try to get ahold of another xbox dvd drive to at least get evox installed. then you should be ok with your pc dvd-rom as long as you dont need to read an original.

wrong! actually, a pc-dvd drive is one of the best things you can use for flashing/installing.
a pc drive will read any media it could in the pc (probably all media). it will read cd-r/rw and dvd+-r/rw as well as burned xbox disks (yes, they will work...even game backups) however, the only thing they can't read is original xbox disks (unless you have a modded samsung 616t which will read original disks)

error 12 is a dvd prob...remember, the retail MS bios will give you an error if no (or incorrect) drive is found. this is because of the dvd check. this is eliminated in hacked bioses so either your chip is off, you didn't flash it correctly, you chip is not connected correctly of your bios is too old.
so basically, you will only be able to use a pc drive with your modchip on.
