I've purchased a box with the executor 2.3B chip as far as I can tell. Please forgive my noobishness, it's been years since I've played with this stuff. I managed to find an install guide for this chip but nothing that really tells me how to use it. The three switches on the front for starters. From what I can gather, Switch one appears to be enable/disable the chip. Switch 2 is to protect/unprotect the bios from flashing? and switch 3 is for Bank 1 and Bank 2? Can anybody verify and explain purpose of the third one? Next question, the hdd is set up in ways I don't understand. I'm showing like 4 different drive paths/partitions. C, E, F, G I think and they are full of junk I don't know what I can safely delete (and how)? The C is where my emulators and roms are stored and it is partitioned for like 100mb and full, whereas there is 4 or 5 gigs of stuff in the other partitions. Can I just take out this hdd (so I don't mess with a working machine), put in a different one and install an OS on it? I want to start fresh with a clean OS (I have the newest hexen image burned already), I want only one partition, a different dashboard perhaps (I don't particularly like the XBMC on there) Next question is how do I find out which bios is installed? Should I install a new one or just leave it?
Picked up another xbox that was sold for parts and untested. Noticed a switch hanging out of the bottom so took a chance. Xbox started up fine and booted up custom bios. Had to remove the motherboard to remove clock capacitor that has visibly failed. Does not appear to be any damage to the traces (version 1.4 or 1.5). Will reinstall the chip after cleaning up the xbox to see what I have. Already downloaded the install instruction that were on another thread.
