  1. Ahh okay. I totally forgot about the whole boot from media thing. Thanks I'll give it a try.
  2. Okay thanks. I tried that and now it is finally working. While I know it is off topic, does anyone know how to get the IND bios running under PBL? I cant get it to work under either the Metoo edition or latest 1.41 release. It would be nice to have it so the system boots to unleash first and then I can go to the debug dash as appose to booting to the debug dash then going to unleash. Thanks
  3. I initially also tried that but only set the launch debug .xbx option which didn't launch the files. Is there anything else I need to set like the first dashboard to launch?
  4. I was wondering if anyone has had any luck mixing a debug bios with a Focus based motherboard. I tried recently doing a retail to debug xbox conversion and the unit that I tried it on has the Focus video encoder and I ran into video issues as soon as I used PBL to switch to a debug bios. I have tried with both the complex 4627 BFM and also with the 5388 stock one that comes with the dev files and they produced the same result, scrambled video.. I have tried this with an xbox that has the Conexant video encoder and it seems to work though unfortunately due to some screw ups with some DVD drive testing, I have fried the DVD control/power from the PIC meaning I have to power the drive from another xbox for it to work (leave it for another topic as to what I was doing). Anyways , I was wondering if anyone knows of any workarounds for getting the debug bios to work on the Focus video encoder. I have a feeling since there arent any since all debug units to my knowledge had the Conexant video encoder, but nonetheless worth a try. Thanks
  5. I'll have to check the motherboard next time I go home as I am away for school. If I remember right, it was the longer side that had one of the pads lifted as to which it doesn't look too good in terms of resurrection of this attempt. I think next time I attempt something like this I will buy chips off of Ebay or lookup some good suppliers for such chips. Sucks Digikey/Mouser don't sell such chips or equivalent. Thanks for the datasheet though.
  6. So I finally got the 4th chip on and when I did XBlast still didn't work. After a couple reflow attempts I managed to get it to test the first 2 chips then lockup on the 3rd with vertical black bars on the screen making me think the chips just aren't making full contact or dead. Unfortunately in my attempts to reflow, I think I had my iron way too hot and removed a pad on one of the chips completely making this project now bust. At least I was able to remove all added on chips and have a working motherboard still. In the future for general knowledge, what causes a FRAG vs not being detected? FRAG I took as bridged address pins and not detected as pins not making contact. Thanks.
  7. Hi guys, I have an odd issue with my ram upgrade. At the moment I have 3 of the 4 chips soldered to the board and it boots "properly". When I initially had the 4th chip installed, the system would still boot but it would not give me the full 128mb only 64. I figured it was re-flow. So far I have gone through many rounds of remove, reflow and wick and such and it has brought me to the current point I am at now with 3/4 chips installed. I thought I could use Xblast (through .xbe launcher) to try and see if the chips are at least working but whenever I try the RAM test it always freezes up the system. I was using the newest version of Xblast OS. I was wondering if anyone had any solutions on this situation? Ive spent way too many hours trying to figure this out so far. All RAM chips are of same model number as well. Thanks
