I think you need to update the BIOS to one that  has LBA48 support.

There should be one on the Hexen disk just make sure that the one you pick is for a VERSION 1.6 Xbox and 256kb.

Evox M8 plus 1.6 F and G or Evox M8 plus 1.5 F only

F only is F drive only ver F and G  is F drive is 137gb and G gets the rest of the space

Have you reflashed the bios on your chip at all? I would put the stock hdd back in and see if it boots from that and then use hexen to reflash a different bios to the Aladdin. You may not have a v1.6 bios flashed. After reflashing the chip swap the drives again and see how you get on :)

Boot your box with a hexen disc in the drive, when it boots up choose the flash tsop/modchip option.  When it boots into the eco x flash menu. Choose flash 256k bios, after that choose a 1.6 bios with F and G support. When that has flashed to the chip you should be good to go.

Thats a bit odd. 

I have a version 1.1 box with N64"s HDMI kit that samples the component  video and digital out there is no conection the the compesite video conection  to the HDMI mod.

I have just tested a Hexen 2019 DVD and it gives a picture ok. The eject light should light up red and it may take a while 1 - 2 minutes to get a picture.

Is it good quality component lead?

May be refitt the old drive and boot to the MS Dash and check the video settings.

I use component 99% of the time and I’ve booted multiple versions of the hexen disc many times without issue... it does take a while after the led goes red for anything to happen on screen tho sometimes...

Yep same here.

I can see why people think it's not working as the first time I booted a Hexen disk and the eject leds whent red I thought something was wrong so I shut down the box and rebooted then when the screen when't black 2nd time I was thinking I had a dud disk but by the time I had stated burning a new copy it had sprung to life.

After you have partition the disk it needs to be formatted.

 Partitioning divides your drive into sections, but you can choose to simply have one partition (a single section encompassing the entire drive)

Once your drive is partitioned, each partition will have to be formatted with a file system (X-FAT. Xbox File Allocation System).

Normal when you do a new install that happen with out you knowing it doing it.

 

Basic computing.

      I'm trying to play this NTSC game on my hardmodded PAL console, but when I boot the game up from the game disc, the console simply reads it as a video and Please login or register to see this link. . I tested the disc on my vanilla PAL Xbox as well, and even on that console, the same thing happens with (there's no region error screen, it just plays the familiar screen shown in the link). I haven't had any problems playing NTSC games from the game disc on my modded Xbox previously, so I don't understand what the problem is. Any ideas? Thanks.

      Hello everyone.  I've asked this question on FB, but would like to verify with this crowd here.
      I have softmodded an v1.6 using Rocky5 most recent version.  I would like to swap to a 2TB SATA drive.  I understand this can be done with a hot swap, cloning the original drive with chimp and then formatting with xb partitioner.
      Is this correct?  Why does this work if the bios is supposed to need LBA-48 to see a large drive?  Is it because each partition is small enough to not need LBA-48?
       
      Thanks in advance.

      I recently installed Rocky5’s xbmc emustation & so far it’s been great. So far I have Genesis, NES, SNES & PlayStation roms installed and I have absolutely no issues with those systems. However my main issues that I cant seem to understand is getting other emulators to work. I’m a huge fan of fighting games like MVC2 and ultimately this project isn’t complete until I can get those games on there. I recently found out that there is a downloads section that allows me to download emulators straight to the xbox and that was such a relief because I’ve struggled to add emulators manually. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong when I add emulators manually but they just don’t seem to work. I can definitely live with this if I can get my main fighting games in there. 
      my friend gave me a few cps roms but I’m not sure how to get them to work in the emustation. I know I sound super noob so bare with me! Lol
