no , u cant do it that way , you cant do a tsop mod , you not gonna do a softmod cause youre scared of braking your expansive computer ,

so you only have 1 option left , buy a chip with solderless adapter ,

Xeniu SPice is fairly easy to install , dont need to solder anything ,

but you need to read tutorials

go to http://www.teamxodus.com/ and read the "ice guide" and the SPice install guide

you can do a tsop mod on the 1.0 xbox ,

and then you can put a large harddrive in it without having to hotswap

but it requires a little soldering

i wouldnt recommend going 2 chips yes they have pros n cons 4 xbox.. but DUDE ur not gonna break anyting on ur pc TRUST ME I HAVE OVER 10GS and im not scar of opeing it again... i dont think u can top that on ur pc.. righ??? Laughing and xboxhdm1.9 is very veyr simple.. the simplest thing to do... get a maxtor hd as they are easy to lock hds.. as taht is what u need to do if u dont have a chip ...


let me know what u wanna do.. but i stil suggest opeing ur pc as u dont damage anytin.. all u have to do is unplug power from it open it unplug the hd put the 1 u want 4 xbox have the disc run on the cd/dvd rom which ever.. and begain process i'd say it NO MATTER WHAT takes @ most like 20 mins.. didnt time my 200gb hd.. as i finished 2 quick b4 i thought of timiin it ... Razz u only need 2 have these tings on ur pc cd rom/ and the hd u wanna upgrade.. ...

The reason u got that on the other pc was becuz thes reason 1 its old .. and 2 u left the hd of the pc in there when u ran the disc ... IF U WOULDNT RUN the disc linux then ur hdd would of never gotten this error ... thou its true i woulnt risk my pc on the line .. BUT LIKE I SAID IM ALMOST 100 % CERTAIN U DONT MESS UP .. as gateways seem good enouhg .. i have the xps gen 600 renage ... u wont find that til later spring ... it was on ces of 06.. look them up on dell.. gaming section...

dont know much bout chips but if u decide to go to chipping then i would say soilderless and somtin like xenuiim ice or spice.. ASK shark2th AS HES THE PRO ON THIS...

but rememver if u have chip then u dont have softmod.. bcuz chip over write what the retail bios = basic input output system is doing 4 example say mr gates says : play only aproval games from me... in other words no unsign codes.. now a chip goes over there and says no u can play anyting. when the chip is switch on ... but when its off it goes retail.. that is why ppl were hyped bout xbl = xbox live.. n softmods were a breeze to put but hassle to turn off 4 live!... OVER time it wasnt an issue .. sid4 dual boot= retail.. u know??? SO THAT IS PRETTY MUCH THE IDEAL.. I HOPE THIS HISTORY LESSON /IDEAL was good .. as this was never mentioned... Rolling Eyes does ur old pc stil work?

and when u hotswap did u leave ur pc hdd there??? cuz maybe hotswap is what mess up ur pc... oh and i stil recommend having some1 2 do the chip 4 u If u decide to go with chip....

see only thing that is better bout chips right now that i can think of .. is that u have FULL acces to ms dash .. as when sid4 whe u had dual boot = retail u coulnt get network setings or xbl section.. cant remember exactly.. but I DEFIANLY recommend softmod vs chip..

trust me u wont meess up ur pc . If u do it the way its soposed 2 be done.. so lets say u get the disc ready... leave it on the cd rom.. 1 . unplug the pc . 2. unplug the PC HDD!!! AND put the other new hdd u want 2 make . 3. plug back run disc first ( on boot order settings) and just fellow the simple steps and u should have a upgrade hdd less then 30 mins..
