I was given this xbox (1.0) because the dvd drive didnt work. I replaced the dvd drive and it worked. I then attempted the hot-swap trick to the computer's IDE cable and started backing up UNTIL I heard several loud clicks and then HDD_driver failed. so I rebooted xbox and I got an error (im not sure what error) I then installed a modchip and was able to play games but the default dash didnt load again (same error) Now I've tried every option in slayers auto evox installer (only to find that it doesnt copy too many files not even evoxdash.xbe or xboxdash.xbe to root) and I've used NewHD installer (with backup files from a friends C:\ drive) but I still get error 13. At one time I DID have evox on the drive working. but I tried to replace it with avalanuch and thats how I started getting errors. I've heard of littlesomeone's system recovery..is that available on xbins -- and will it work? Thanks, Tony
factory HD, clicks every now and then, formats fine, saves fine. status is locked but I did have it unlocked for a while.
