gentoox asks for 4.5 gigs on e: I have deleted everything i have possibly can and yet theres still not enough room. I thought gentoox could work without a harddrive upgrade? am I missing something here?

I used GT-Jays boot disk, or an Avalaunch boot disk. Like the one used to do a modded install after a chip has been installed. The X3 chip also has the ability to format the drive. I think your problem was that when your xbox was first modded, you may have used the EvoX disk to format. It needed less space on the E drive.

Formatting E is often your best choice, as the space available is usually misrepresented.

From FAQ
Not enough free space on E:
