is there some sort of way to turn a pc into an xbox, i had like a dual boot os type thing where you have two hdds (pc and xbox hdd) and somehow configure it to boot the xbox dash to play games, i modded my xbox to a computer but i wanted to know if there was a way to reverse it somehow, and no there is no reason behind it, so dont tell me to just go buy an xbox and a pc and use them separately, because i do already , i just wanted to kno if there was a way to integreate them together somehow

i was looking into a way to doing this a few months ago and the easiest solution i could come up with would be to mount both motherboards into one case, probably facing each other. I suspect you'd need to start with a Lian Li case for the extra width mainly for convenience and extra air flow. then you'd need a lot of patentce and the case modding skill similar to halouser to get it to look good.

the only other way to do it is to create a custom bios for a pc mother board which would contain a crude form of hypervisor to make the pc hardware emulate the xbox hardware and a switch to enable PC mode or XBOX mode as necessary, so good in theory but disadvantage you have to know how to program a bios and you cant use both systems at once.

if you make any progress on this let me know, it would be interesting to see

i was considering the same thing, mounting the mobos in one case, that i could see(and for not im not worried about it looking good), but i was thinking about some kind of application that can switch between the pc and the xbox, like you said a custom bios, but i have abosoloutly no programming knoledge and wouldnt know how to do something that complicated, i dont even know how to go about integrating the mobos together, i didnt have time lately to look more into it, but its definitely something im gonna search more into.

Man, you guys are good. My answer was going to be sell the PC and use the money to get an xbox. Laughing
