Alright first I want to appologize to Xbox-hq for posting so many threads... just impatient... Ill learn to b a little better....

Hhere is what I have.... i bought a box off ebay.... all good... it had not been modded any way... (as far as i could tell)... so i thought it would be cool to mod... so i finally got everything i thought i needed.... action replay... mechasult... AID... and this is what i believe happened....

First i got a RUN LINUX off of the action replay and saved it on my memory card then to my box... good so far... then i ran mechasult and ran the RUN LINUX profile... GREAT... then i tried to Install Single Boot Soft mod... here is where it gets confusing... this is what comes up:

INSTALL
This will format your C Drive and install the Softmod and Dashboard. Are you ready to proceed? YES
INSTALL CHECK
The installer is now chekcing to se if you have a valid MS backup. OK
FAILURE!!!!
Batch process failed. The last item was: E:\Backup\<S is not present Action: Rename

PS i have tried running newer XBOX LIVE games and tring to update the dash taht way... it just restarts the game... does nothing....

I thought i did something wrong so i exited that and told it to shut off my computer... meanwhile i was making a disk using AID... only i had to have a problem with this one... The AID ISO updater always seemed to fail on the UPLOAD of the ISO... GREAT...

Then i turned by box on.... WTF!>! Error 13!!1 Lucky me! I still can run games but no dvds... (i have the remote)... so i thought that maybe i could just connect my computer with FTP and transfer the files that i needed to the xbox and get me going again...

Wrong... somehow i cannot ping the box... i made sure that it was a crossover cable when i bought it and did everything i could to get it to connect... no such luck...

So now i am stuck with an xbox... that only plays xbox games... doesnt really sound that bad but I am Dieing to get this darn thing modded... I run the RUN LINUX... wich is SID 5.01... i can explore and go through all the menues... GREAT... i guess... but i am stuck here... not sure what is left for me to do...

all i can think to do is to hotswap it... im kinda afraid to do that unless its my last resort... (my spare computer is old) but i htink it has all the requirements... Not sure if you can use the controller to usb to connect to the computer... seems doughtfull... but if anyone has any ansers or even something that can lead me in the right direction..... GREATLY APPRECIATED...

I do not believe that i am that stupid... but i have been wrong before... lol... sry for so many questions but somehow one simple thing for me leads into a mess...

Hi,
Have a go at this then post back :

when you run MechAssault and click `Run Linux` theres an option, i think its under `Backup/Restore` , it says `create MS backup` - click that, then try to run SID to complete the softmod.

I just tried that....

FAILURE!!
Batch process failed.
The last item was: Found modded files. MS Backup Failed.
Action: Rename

Maybe there is a file with the wrong extention or it just needs to be called something else.... lets hope its that ez! lol

Right, judging by this and your other posts i reckon your MS dash is somehow missing one or two files, theres not much you can do about it (you cant FTP cos its not modded yet) It looks like a Hotswap is your only `free` option.

So did your xbox even boot up to the dashboard when you got it??
Personally i would just install a modchip of any flavor and use Auto installer Deluxe to automatically format, install and configure your xbox.

With a modchip fitted AIDeluxe will always be able to boot even if files are missing from the hdd.. Smile Softmodding can become a nightmare when you start having issues and need to reinstall mods etc..

hope that helps!

hey tinitimmah just go to google and type in softmod.installer.deluxe.v2.0 and download it and drag it to your memory card then to your xbox run mechassault click campaign and click run linux. then the soft mod part will come up. click create ms backup and mod backup. then click install softmod. then click install evov or unleashx i prefer evox cause thats what i did and its awesomer than unleash. eject the disk. and reboot the xbox then you will be greeted with a evox dash

tjpryor : you could take it apart and look at the PSU & video chip, that would tell you what version it is, or look at the Manufacture date on the bottom for a rough idea.

First off though i want to remind tjpryor that i cannot get into MS dash... so it looks like my only option is to hot swap it... im weary about the mod chip... how hard can they be and what makes one better than the other?
before i decide to hotswap what are the drawbacks... can i really scew up my hard drive and be out more then if i just tried a mod chip?

Thanks again for everyones help
