BIOS v6.01b Additions

Post by cheesyboofs » Tue Jan 24, 2006 9:06 pm

If the Xbox cant find a boot disk it auto jumps to netboot (good)
After it jumps to netboot it just sits there (bad) – anyway you could make it auto ‘connect’ after say 120 seconds if the controller isn’t touched?

Secondly the netboot option isn’t IIS6 (windows server web hosting) friendly. If I host the resctoox.t00x file on my spare xbox another xbox can boot from it fine. If I host the file on my windows server I get a page not found when I try to drag it down. If I rename the file to resctoox.t the windows web server offers it up. I think a way round this would be to make the BIOS look for /sourceforge/xbox-linux/resctoox.t* omitting the 00x but maintaining backward compatibility with v6.11

Your thoughts.

I kinda like your post about netboot auto booting... as for the "t00x" extension, go complain to microsoft.
