    He formated the C: drive so if he was smart he backedup his C: drive if not he will have to settle for a modded state until (or if he already has it then he won't have to wait) he gets slayers, because that is the only installing (that I know of) that has a xbox dash that he could replace. So what he would have to do is redo his C: drive on the hdd not very hard but hey it's all up to him on how hard he makes it lol.

    I would upgrade my stock HD and use the auto-insaller to reformat. I would Auto Installer Deluxe(AID) which is way better than the outdated Slayers 2.6. If you don't want to do any of that, Hopefully he backed up his C: drive like Degalle just said.

    Sorry, I misread your post!! You have a large HD and your getting Error 13( Launch Dashboard Fail due to missing/or bad key) I would definately use an auto-installer like AID to reformat. Trust me on this one..when I installed my Xenium I was getting this error because I flashed my chip with the OEM hd in(in case of bad flash and to avoid error codes) via http; Therefore, when I installed my larger hd and launched the x2 bios, obviously, I got error 13 because the hd was un-formatted!! I simply use AID to format the hd and installed all dasboards(Microsoft & Evox)and then the apps. You can find AID from the usaul places!!
