Why are you using SID 5.01? They just released 5.12 a couple of months ago. Please download the latest version and try again.

sounds like your DASH is fucked? (you tried to softmod an already sofmodded console without the correct steps AND you failed to note that the first time around!)
1, get a RETAIL original game WITH A DASH UPDATE PRESENT (should be m$5960) and update the dash THEN do the splinter cell mod...OR OR OR...
2, REBUILD the hdd in an ide compatible computer OR OR....LASTLY the easiest to try first as you didn't even elaborate whether you attempted it or not....
3, GET SPPV'S XBMC INSTALLER AND WRITE THAT TO DISK USING IMGBURN THEN AFTER DISK IS WRITTEN, COLD BOOT THAT DISK ON THE XBOX, PUT IT IN THE DVD DRAWER, POWER OFF THE CONSOLE THEN POWER ON AND SEE IF YOU GET TO THE XBMC INSTALLER MENU! (i had to repeat myself)
also, did you look this thread over?
you didn't try what was already suggested, the last response of mine!
seems you didn't?
PLEASE read it...and you need to work on your clarification skills...not pissing in the wind here! Mad
(and this thread/issue is directly related to your last post on this)

If he burns SPPV installer disk make sure he does it at a speed of 8x!

SPPV got REALLY mad when I was doing it at different speed and didn't know any better

^^ @ metalgearsolid6669.
never an issue or in debate, just absorb the info provided FIRST TIME!
....
okay, you updated the green retail dash using halo 2 so at least that part is done!
you said "sid 5.01"...an OLD softmod failed you! sid 5.11/5.12 requires that the dash be updated to last known release (m$5960) so you did the halo 2 bit!
the sid 5.12 is for a compatible 4g or less usb card (roughly 120m)
the 5.11 is for 8m mc's!
now you're ripping the last sid release, you should be fine now!
please report back on your progress on the (new) splinter cell mod attempt/success...
thanks!
[edit]....
just copy the sid 5.11 splinter cell exploit (NTSC-U) to the console AFTER first removing all traces of the OLDER softmod exploit (the 5.01 you mentioned, if you already did, ignore that bit) then load it up through the retail game til you get to a menu and please report back...

#1 My Installer discs wont boot on an unmodded console, so scratch that

#2 Yes I will et mad if people ignore the instructions, burn m work at te wrong speed and come back looking for help. People cant take the time to read I cant take the time to help

#3 Your exploit has obviously already been used as the config files get renamed on use and causes a reboot on an unmodded console.

I agree with above grab my 5.12 pack from the Download area here on HQ and use it. Or else wait for the Babylon release (still weeks away)

^^ i'm not sure what the issue could be now if you followed the steps...
1, updated retail dash with halo 2 (effectively restoring the default C:/ volume setup)
2, got the sid 5.11 splinter cell exploit and run it as a savegame to get to the softmod installer)
..........
the game just resets after you run the exploit?!
apart from rebuilding the hdd in a computer (C:/ volume with console eeprom.bin to hand) i'm at a loss...
i've had ONE TIME where what you described above happened and that's because i was experimenting with the shadowC (C;/ volume LOCK-OUT/no mod) in the early days of it's release...because i enabled shadowC on a softmod install (retail dash shadowC) the softmod was constantly resetting the game and installing NOTHING...but i knew that, just testing it's effectiveness as a CHILD-SAFE lockout!
........
still, none of what i've said could explain how you was able to update the stock dash with halo 2 restoring the console (C:/ volume specifically) back to factory defaults! Confused
..........
all i can suggest at this point is wait for SPPV's BABYLON sid...
he's working on it......a thread on it is still visible on the forum frontend!
..........
hmm? sorry but i'm all out of ideas right now.... Crying or Very sad

open the installer save on your PC and open the config with notepad. Under prefrences you will see autolaunch options. If any say yes change it to no and save it. Other than that this boot failure would be a pre-mod issue. Which it most likely is since Ive never had anybody post this kind of issue with my 5.12 pack. And if thats the case you either need to start from the begining with the actual "FACTS" or rebuild the HDD using AutoBuilder
