I wouldn't spend too long on it. If a re-partition and re-format is the answer then so be it. It's just good to finally know why 6.x wouldn't boot, and now we know. I think a small ext2 boot partition is a more professional approach anyway. If you've given it a look into and you can see no way to go...

Right I've taken down one of my nas'es and pissed off the misses to borrow the telly to do as you requested and all the mkreiserfs --format 3.5 /dev/hda2 command did was limit me to a max file size of 2Gb, so I couldn't copy over roofs, was kinda hoping for a fix that didn't require a data partition...

Well personally I'd love to know how to tweak the BIOS, I'd love to know how to tweak the menus and other bits of the UI, but then coming from a Graphic Design background I would do.
Everyone's a critic :wink:

This is completely off topic and you should have started a new thread but I would Boot the Restoox CDRW and then copy over raincoat and then re-flash the BIOS with your chosen BIOS.

Forgive me but I wasn't aware reiserfs support had been intentionally dropped, as it was supported once viewtopic.php?t=2460

Well hold off for just a bit, hopefully the firmware can be fixed! Failing that theoretically, you could fdisk /dev/hda and delete the swap partition (dev/hda1) then create a 10Mb /dev/hda1 ext2 /Boot partition and then create a 246Mb /dev/hda2 swap partition and hopefully the new dev/hda3 (was /dev...

Right, thanks to exboxxed pointing me in a new direction I first confirmed his findings, If you format the data partition with ext3 and not reiserfs the v6x bioses do indeed work! (Luckily in one of my Xboxes I have a switchable mod-chip so I can switch between v5.11 and v6.01) So there is a bug in ...

Thanks for all your efforts, you have breathed a new life into this thread and if nothing else I thank you for that. I did try using ext2/ext3 for the data partition but I found it a very noisy/clattery file system with the head flying about the disk all the time where as reiserfs seemed a lot quiet...

This is fantastic and possibly the work around we need, what a fantastic 1st post. My two Xbox's are now in full service, can anyone try this? Perhaps move the swap partition to the end of the disk, or create a small boot one in-front of the swap partition.

All I can suggest is that you make sure your time is correct, every time emerge --sync has failed for me it has been because my time was to far out.

Two things; http://www.cheesyboofs.co.uk/site/sd3.jpg If you find the xbox crashing (red light on solid) or one of the hard drives spinning up and down all the time after you add the second hard drive, the first thing to change is the power splitter cable you will need as some cheap ones don't quite...
