Hello to all!
I've done a search and although this question seems to be asked a lot, I just want to be sure that I handle my paticular problem correctly. So, here's the story...
I used Krazyie's latest softmod on my original Xbox and decided 10 minutes later I needed a bigger hard drive. I bought a lockable Seagate 160GB HDD and ran it through XBXHDM without a problem. (during the iso creation, I made sure to copy over everything from my C and E drives which I then passed onto my new HDD).
I threw it into my Xbox expecting to see the EvoX dash as that is what was running on my old HDD but instead it booted to the MSDash. Fine...I re-ran Splinter Cell (yes, I already threw out the old save and placed a new one in) and ran the exploit to overwrite the existing software (I know...wrong thing to do). It didn't work and ended up with the error of:
Batch process failed.
The last item was: .
I got the same problem if I tried to uninstall it. During the re-installation it would hang at the "choose dashboard" option until I pass FTP'd the original files to the C drive during before hitting enter. It then loaded the EvoX dash and it seemed to be fine...Except I can't boot to the original MS dash and that would suck if I have to reset my clock or audio settings.
After doing some searching on these forums, I decided to delete the entire contents of the C drive and replace it with my backup files with the original dash. It worked great! I can boot to the original dash and look around. Now when I try to install the EvoX dash, I get the same error (Action: rename) and it won't load.
I've done a lot more searching and a lot more reading and it seems that I simply have old mod files on E drive that I have to get rid of or alter before I can install the mod properly. So the question is...would this work: Could I remove all files on C drive and replace with original and latest MSDash and delete everything on E drive except Tdata and Udata and then re-run exploit and EvoX install? Also, would it help to delete everything within the Udata folder as there may be something left in there from the previous install?
I know this question gets asked a lot so I appreciate any response I can get! Thanks!
