HeXEn: Unable To Flash Bios. Error Reading Bios File.

Recommended Posts

Unable to flash BIOS. Error reading bios file (see pic). To me it sounds like I have a bad DVD burn? Just wanted to confirm. I did burn at the slowest write speed. Will re-burn again.

-v1.1 mobo
-XeXEn 2018
-Using Verbatium DVD+R media
-Attempting to flash iND-BIOS.5004 (F and G) to use 2TB SATA HDD.

Try the X2-5035.67 that will also work with a 2tb hard drive.

You have a 1024kb(1meg ) chip so why not use it.

-That went well. Seems like I had a bad DVD burn previously. Now is there anything else I need to do (eg. Unlock HDD)?

Never mind, was hesitant to unlock the HDD due to a warning if softmodded and if HDD is unlock your xbox won't boot.

Thanks for all the help!

With the TSOP flashed the Xbox will boot a install disk with a unlocked hard drive. It's only a softmod that need the hard drive locked and I think on the TruHeXEn 2020 disk there is a softmod remove option and if it's not on the TruHeXEn disk then it's on the Rocky5's disks.

I run all my Xboxes with unlocked hard drives ranging from a stock 10gig to 2tb drives.

With a unlocked hard drive you can easily clone a HDD for a 2nd xbox that has a chip/TSOP mod.

      Hi guys i just found my old xbox in the basement and by the look of things it looks like its hardmoded with a Xecuter chip and there is even a 120gb drive installed and all is working without any issues. My main question is if anyone here could help me identify what kind of Xecuter chip this is, because my plan is that i would like to replace the 120gb drive with a 1tb but im getting a LBA48 warning when i try to partition the new disk and its asking me to ugrade the current bios with a new one that supports LBA48.
      Current INFO:
      Bios: Xecuter2 4976.02
      Kernel 1.00.5838.01
      Xbox v1.1
      What would be the best course of action, how should i approach the reflashing, what bios should i pick so that the new 1tb drive works as intended and ofcause what should i think about when i approach all this?

      Hello,
      I bought a modchipped Xbox rev1.0. I want to remove the clock capacitor and don't want the modchip to be stuck on a clock loop, so I would like to know how to safely update the bios on the modchip through a burned CD/DVD. I've seen things like Slayers Disc and Hexen, but I'm not entirely sure how to proceed after burning them, and I'm not sure how safe it is and I don't want to screw anything up.
      My modchip I think is the Aladdin onde, has if you hold the power button it boots an old version (as far as I can tell) of EvoX, which besides running burned media and the logo on boot, looks just like the MS dashboard.
      Any help much appreciated.

      Hi Guys,
      I currently have a 500gb hdd installed in my xbox (v1.2), but I'm planning on installing a 2tb hdd , and I just need some clarification on a couple of issues before I buy the larger hdd.
      My modchip currently has the X2 4981.06 bios, and when I run XBPartitioner v1.3, it warns me that "LBA48 not found! custom partitions will not work with this BIOS! Update your BIOS to one which supports at least LBA48 version 2".
      From what I've read, it sounds as though the hdd limit with this bios should be 137gb, however, as mentioned, I already have a 500gb hdd installed.
      So my question is, do I actually need to update the bios in order to install a 2tb hdd, or will it function correctly with this bios?
      I realise that updating the bios would be the easiest solution, however, the modchip is an X.B.I.T v1.0 with the external PCB which connects to a PC via USB to flash the bios. The flashing software requires winXP and specific USB host controllers, and so far, I haven't been able to get it work.
      Thanks in advance.
