From the Open Xenium screen press A to open the Launch Menu

Then highlight the BIOS you want to use and press A

copy a BIOS you plan on using to a USB it can be in FAT 16 or FAT 32 

select launch menu 

then select Add New item

Select Flash

The look for the drive that just the odd one out (in my case it's H drive) and select it 

The look for the BIOS you are going to use and select it

 

When it's complete refer to my previous post about selecting a bios.

To load a install disk have it in the DVD drive and power cycle and the select the BIOS and the disk should boot

I do not know the Xenium but surely if the OP wants HeXEn to boot so he can install a BIOS and a dash all he has to do is cold boot a HeXEn disc.

It should be burned on DVD-R using ImgBurn at lowest supported speed. HeXEn boots slowly - there is generally a 20 - 30 second delay.

By default the Open Xenium doesn't have a BIOS to boot from and will only display the built in Operating System and cannot boot a HDD or DVD so you need to add you own BIOS's

This is all the OP would have seen if the modchip when it did not have any BIOS's programed.

I assume Open Xenium does not come with instructions then because something like that would seem rather important to know.

Looking at that menu I'd see the Disk Tools option and think that meant it would at least boot a burned installer disc. Apparently not - its referring only to HDD tools.

If Please login or register to see this link. is still the latest manual then somebody needs to re-write it to bring it up to date. The very first item should be a noob friendly guide to getting started and how to install a good basic BIOS like Evox M8+ with larger HDD support in nice, clear easy steps so you can actually use the chip. Kind of fundamental for practically............everything. :) 

Most users probably wouldn't need anything more than this.

Just found this which is older but much, much better:-

The seller should probably at least send the buyer a link to the install and operation manual or better yet include a $2 USB or a 20 cent CD with both on it but with everyone trying to make a buck from making and selling them that's not going to happen.

The seller I used to get chips from for the PS1,PS2 Xbox used to include install instructions either on a CD or printed with the chips.

Its petty obvious from this thread and others I've seen across a range of Xbox forums over the years that chips do not come with adequate info.

The posters would not be having to ask these sorts of questions if they were.

Of course the info is out there but you do need to go looking for it not knowing if you're going to find the answer to your question. Ergo its easier to ask the question in a well populated forum like this as you'll get the answer quicker and probably a whole load of other useful info too.
