The xbox is TSOP modded. I'm trying to fix in a new HD for a friend. I've already done it before and succeeded. Though there was always some time when i had to boot the xbox a dozen times before it would load but this i've booted more than 50 times and still won't load.
Install 40 gb Maxtor hd.
Slayer's disk 2.6 (Arita DVD - Ritek05 code)
Samsung drive!!! (My xbox-drive was Phillips and that worked perfect!)
I'm kinda desperate, though it maybe kinda of simple and standard I just can't seem to find the right answer/method.
Thanx in advance

Have you tried using different kinds/brands of media? DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, CD-R, CD-RW (although I'm not sure if Slayers will fit on those last two).
I had a drive once that wouldn't read anything but DVD-RW. And that was the last thing I tried. I couldn't believe it finally worked. Samsungs are supposed to be able to read anything you throw at it, but who knows -- maybe yours is picky.

You could always swap your DVD drive into his box long enough to boot and setup the hard drive.
