harddisk install


Recommended Posts

hi all, i have here an xbox with no harddisk of its own but i had the hdkey, so i built a basic microsoft unmodded dash and locked it with the key.

it boots fine no problems at all, now what i want to do is put an 80 gig drive i have in it, and normally (at least before) i have run the softmod then used chimp to migrate to a bigger drive, but i was thinking can i just build an 80 gig softmod drive and lock it with its hardisk key?.

that would save messing around with the softmod and swapping drives, i could just build a drive and bung it in, iv'e done it with hardmods before but they had unlocked drives,  i know softmods need locking but can i leave out the middle man.

if i could take an 80 gig softmod hardisk image i have and lock it to this xbox it would save some time.

thanks,

aly.

      Hi all,
      I’m trying to replace the stock HDD with a 1TB SSD(samsung 870 QVO). I have a 1.6b xbox with an Apple X IV pro. First thing I did was flashing the TSOP bios with 512 kb version of evox bios with forced 480p and no DVD from ogxbox installer 2021. After connecting SSD with 80 pin IDE + startech ide to sata and starting up I see the new boot animation with light blue logo. The DVD however seems to get stuck in some infinite read loop.
      The old HDD does still boot to the ogbox menu from the DVD. I can also connect and read the ssd with usb connector. Tried to format to exfat and still the same issue. Tried 256 kb Evox bios, same problem. 
      I’m probably missing something obviously or the startech ife to sata is broken. Any pointers are welcome

      I'm about to install this spi2par2019 to use with my open xenium. I've soldered a single row pin header to the spi2par2019, can I solder the other side directly to the lcd screen? The reason I'm asking is that I can only see pictures of Rezze doing this while everone else seemed to use wires to connect to the LCD it self!!!!

      So i have a 1.6 or 1.6b xbox and i ordered a mod chip to try modding it. i see every time someone mods an xbox that have this board that they use with it.
      I don't have that board and want to ask if its possible to  mod it without it.
