Hey everyone, I'm new to the community. I've had an original xbox laying around for a few years now and I thought it would be a fun project to make it into a web server. I have read many tutorials and guides but I'm still not sure as to whats the best route to take in doing so. I have made a usb to memory port on the controller and I have a copy of Splinter Cell. Just wanted to get more opinions on the best option to soft mod my xbox.

As you have Splinter Cell and a USB adapter, Krayzie 1.1.1 is the best option. Grab it from the usual places, format a USB stick on the Xbox (must be less than 4GB, and not all USB sticks work), then use Xplorer360 beta 6 on your PC to copy the Krayzie gamesaves to your USB stick. After that it's easy - copy the gamesave to your Xbox, run Splinter Cell, load the gamesave, follow the instructions.

Thanks for the help, I was able to get my xbox modded. I had a little trouble with getting the files on to my usb drive but I was able to get it to work. I ended up choosing the UnleashX install and it went really smoothly. If I have any more questions I will ask.
Thanks again Zerali

Hi, I'm doing the same to a stock xbox. Only want to install the latest XBMC on it but I also want to install a larger HD. What's the best order? Softmod first then upgrade HD or upgrade HD first then softmod?

It's not technically possible to attempt a hdd upgrade before the initial softmod - you'll need the eeprom contents to lock the upgraded hdd.
