Okay people,

My problem is i need to get my X-box to work again but my friend deleted many things off of it.

x-box v 1.0 / 160 gig / worked fine until he deleted alot of things.
This is what i get when i try to put in a game or anything in it.

It goes to the x-box and no white micro$oft logo even appears under it.
I get the green ball powering up and then a green x-box logo and nothing but a Christmas light on my x-box and then pops up a service screen.



My friend has a desktop but i only have a laptop so i have to use his computer.
He does not have internet but i do at home and so i am hoping we can fix this problem as soon as possible.

Here we are inside his desktop!
Now his dvd drive is hooked up to this cable as u can see in the picture.



And now without description



He only has a Barracuda sata drive but no ide cable for the x-box.
Here is another picture of the Barracuda sata drive and the cables that go to it.



And this one with description



My problem is i need it running so i can soft mod it all over again from the beginning.

Like a brand new x-box all over again is what i want to do.

Now can you answer WHAT IS THIS FOR please...

And am i able to get this running again cause i don't want to chip it but just soft mod it if possible.

Do i need another cable and where do i plug it into is my question.

I wanna know how it works for the x-box to be connected since i dont have a ide cable that connects from the barracuda sata drive to an x-box.

How do you swap with a sata drive that doesn't come with a ide cable?

Thanks if you guys can answer and help me out.

That's new a customer service screen for me.

Sounds like you could just do a simple rebuild the drive with xboxhdm.

Well i would like to get into my x-box and that is why im here for answers.
I do have an original x-box laying around and not modded but if anybody can actually get me into my x-box and help me with the other 1 that would be great.

Please if any help that would be appreciated.

With out the stock HDD or a copy of the eeprom you will need to build an eeprom reader as showen here: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/357863

Or you will need a mod chip to bypass the eeprom all together.

Pic 2 the what is this is the hook up location for your Disk drive and hard drive if you use an IDE DVD and HDD and pic 5 shows point one is your HDD power and point 2 is the data transfer cable.

He's right. I've been able to save many a drive with my x3 but I would need EEPROM keys or original hd. My advise is to try to get original hd. Or if bold enough find older tower and try hotswap and xbhdmaker .9. Worse comes to worse you can get new box at gamestore for $50-$60. If you can get original me or anyone here can walk you through it. Good luck.

i would say make an eeprom reader, simple and easy to do if you have all the parts.

Could also just go for a mod chip, simplest of all and its the best mod in my opinion.
