Pointless? Nah - I did not know how to do any of that and taught myself how. So I was able to learn. That was the point. :) Also I would have to had to ftp upload all to E:\ then use resctoox. Before that, I would have had to free 800mb on E:. With seeing what had to be edited to get it to work usin...

Thank You nobspangle ! (way late comming) :)

Well I cannot say that was easy but I figured it out. I followed the process nobspangle pointed out. (I did not need to use chroot - and still do not know what nano was) I was able to make the edits and Gentoox Pro 2.0a is running - just loaded successfully and waiting for a login! If you know the c...

The bios does have 2 choices = F: gets all or F: and G: drive combo. If I can set the size of G: would it be an issue is F: is ...

Exactly! I want to keep F: for my games and homebrew xbox appz. I have a 250gb drive at the momemt and F: is using the rest of the drive. I am guessing I need to off load all my thing from all the drives and start over. My mod chip gives me the option to create a G: drive. I was thinking of giving 2...

No, Delete them from your E drive, download the new resctoox 1.6 and do the same renaming as you did before and upload the renamed files.

Burned the stardust.iso for home edition 3.2 to dvd and was able to launch default.xbe from avalauch. The install worked and I have a functioning F: drive install (which is the root and swap on f: and the rest on e: ). It did not disturb any software I had on F: or E: IT did error out when it attemp...

Wow: http://forums.shallax.com/viewtopic.php?t=1121&highlight=fdrive Ya, this guy got it to work Back in octomber of 2004. Since then that idea and code could have been used to correct the resctoox cd to do what it was described to do. The command "sh /bin/f-drive" does nothing more than move the sw...

<Hadaken> in IRC gave me the idea that running resctoox from HD may cause the issue. I am gonna get it burned on a good dvd or cdrw and try it. If those do not work Iwill connect a differnt PC DVD-ROM drive and try it.


Will post the results.
