Hi, I have connected the 2 wires and a switch to the points where i removed the resistor from on the dvd controller board. After connecting the switch i checked with my multimeter that connections where good and switch was working, it checked out to be fine with multimeter so i moved on to try and flash it.
When running mtkflash it either stops with no drive detected or it will detect drive then when i pick pri master it stops with port : ef00, master/slave : ao. The when i push ESC it says status = 01 should be 70, (sometimes i also get status 00 and 51) (have also tryed selecting Pri slave with same results).
after trying for a couple of days i have put the xbox back togeather leaving the wires and switch in place with the switch turned on and it still boots original games and works ok.
This is a link to my motherboard on the Abit website :
It has an Intel ICH7 sata chipset, and i have read loads of posts from people saying that they have got the ICH7 to work with an edited mtkflash so i cannot figure out why it wont work for me.
Xtream boot maker, when i click detect I/O it gives an error saying that it is not compatible with mtkflash. So i ran MSINFO32 because i was going to manually edit mtkflash for my chipset. But when i goto componants/storage/SCSI it is empty? I had a look in the IDE section and found my sata in there? but this is what it say's :
Name Intel® 82801G (ICH7 Family) Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 27DF
PNP Device ID PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DF&SUBSYS_106F147B&REV_01\3&2411E6FE&0&F9
I/O Port 0x0000FB00-0x0000FB0F
Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\pciide.sys (5.1.2600.0 (XPClient.010817-1148), 3.25 KB (3,328 bytes), 04/08/2004 13:00)
In the tutorials for editing mtkflash it shows more that 1 line for I/O Port and you are supposed to use the values from 2 I/O Port lines.
What can i do to make this sata chipset work? Other people have said that it has worked for them so why wont mine?
I also went to pc world and bought 1 of there sata cards but when i got it home i found it has a silicon image chipset and they are reported by most people not to work and when i tryed to flash with it it gave the exact same problems in mtkflash (Status 01) even after using Xtream boot maker to make my custom mtkflash. I would really rather not have to buy another sata card when other people have got the ICH7 working.
If there is any info i have missed that would be helpful in finding the problem let me know and i'll try and post it.
Any help with this would be great. Thanks.
