Ok, SID and AID are very different. I'll outline as follows:

SID is the program used to softmod the Xbox. It will install the dashboard and get you started. SID is installed and run via the gamesave exploits found in Splinter Cell, MechAssault or 000 Agent Under Fire.

AID is the software that will install all of your applications and software onto the Xbox after SID has been completed. It has things like DVD2Xbox, XBMC, Emulators and ROM's etc that can be installed.

So what you'll need to do, is use SID to mod the box initially, then use AID to install anything extra you want on there. As for upgrading the HDD, you have two options. It you have a v1.0 - v1.5 Xbox, it is probably best and easiest to use a program called Chimp. This can be found on the AID disc (must be installed to HDD) and a tutorial for this app is under my sig.

If you have a v1.6 Xbox, it may be better to use a program called XboxHDM. Tutorials for this can be found in our tutorial section.

If you need any help with anything, just shout.

You should be able to get a copy of Mechassault or Splinter Cell for cheaper than that at either EB Games or GameStop

I just got back from geting mechassault.In stead of buying it from a guy for $30 bucks,i found a copy a t a game store 5 minutes from my house for $4 bucks.Its the right version too.I down loaded the SiD5 installer and the SID5 Loader for MechAssault.I have a memory.I dont have Xbox Action Replay but what i did is i cut the plug from a xbox controler and added a usb plug.I then down loaded the drivers for the controler and now the controler is working with my computer games.Will that work to put the installer on it?

If you burn the iso to a cdrw or dvd-r and pop it in there is an option to add apps 1 by 1 and you can unpack the iso and pull out what you want to ftp in.

If you burn it with dvd decrypter (found in the aid folder after download )or nero image burn to a cdrw or dvd-r it should work and it will take a long time to load and start up so wait on it.
You can ftp in the stuff one by one to E drive, if its an app put it in the app folder and so on.
