I have been trying to upgrade from a 200GB IDE drive to a sata drive for awhile now. Tried 4 sata adapters (deal extreme ones) and 4 different sata drives. My Xbox has a Xecuter 2.6 mod chip and is a version 1.0 Xbox.
I have tried various versions of the AID disc installer and slayers 2.7 disc. None of the AID disc's load when using the sata drives, they do load with the IDE drive however. The slayers disc does load with the sata drives, and I attempt to build a new drive, but when I reboot I get a error 13.
Also tried the XboxHDM disc on my PC, built a new drive, but still will not work on the Xbox, error 13 again!
XboxHDM always shows the drives as frozen, when I select the generate HD key option, and it shows a summary page.
Have also tried setting the jumper to master and cable select (no jumper).
My modchip allows me to switch between two BIOS... BIOS 1 is X2 5035 and BIOS 2 is X2 4983.
