ok buddy, sounds like you have a modchip installed (probably a duoX 512.. by the sound of it.. holding the power button, etc.)<br><br>as far as identifying your chip TAKE THAT SUCKER APART :), take a picture, post it , we will figure it out, to figure out your bios, well, youve already told me quite a bit, sounds like your running an evox m8 bios, which. is pretty crappy for linux, what you would probably want to do, is either a) run a loopback filesystem on a fatx partition of your harddrive, or b) flash your modchip with the cromwell bios :s (kind of the more extreme, as it wont allow you to play xbox games anymore)
<br><br>anyway..<br><br>and no, you dont have to change the harddrive, and i dont understand question 3.<br><br>-dustin reeves<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 1/7/07, <b class="gmail_sendername">Arnau Bria</b> &lt;

<br>me a modified Xbox, and my first idea is to install gentoo on it.<br><br>So, I&#39;m following <a href=""></a>.<br><br>I&#39;m reading the guide, but I have few question cause I know nothing
<br>about my new gift (chip installed, BIOS, etc..).<br><br>I just know that I must start my box pressing the button for some<br>seconds, and an orange led is on, and then, appears &quot;EVO-X&quot;, so I<br>suppose this is the chip version.
<br><br>Doing a quick search on google, I found that is possible to boot<br>linux with that chip.<br>So, I&#39;ve changed the HD to new formated one with 80GB of space.<br><br>I have downloaded livecd-xbox-20050914.iso burned and instered it into
<br>the xbox, and the only thing I see is this:<br><br>26 2005 - <a href=""></a><br>2002 Xbox Linux Team . Licensed under the GPL<br><br>Then, it hangs...<br><br>So, here are my questions:
<br><br><br>1.-) How may I know all xbox info needed? (BIOS version and type etc...)<br>Most docs talk about that some steps might be different depending on<br>the xbox &quot;version&quot;...<br><br>2.-) Do I have to change the HD to original one?
<br><br>3.-) May I have a complet boot with EVO-X and that iso? Is my<br>problem a known one? (found nothing on a quick google search)<br><br><br>Thanks in advance,<br>Arnau<br>--<br><a href="mailto:gentoo-xbox@g.o">
