    :lol:

    Ok, Dell Dimension 4600, went to Dell.com, updating everything possible for my CPU.

    Took my XBOX360 apart, made the connection, and never got into MobeB. Plus, I never got that "Spinning Up Disc" thing. Then, as I'm reading all the text on the screen, I noticed that I'm seeing alot of undetected, none, and failed stuff in the text. (Like... ATA1 failed, ATA2 failed, etc.)

    I have the Sata cord plugged into the inside of the CPU.

    Note: I'm guessing that the two SATA slots on the inside are correct.

    Later, Found out in the system setup (F2 Button) that there was...

    "SATA Primary Drive -> Identifies the serial ATA hard drive attached to the SATA1 connector on the system board.

    &

    SATA Secondary Drive ->Identifies the serial ATA hard drive attached to the SATA2 connector on the system board."

    Note: I'm guessing that the system setup is my bios (if not, then I don't know how to access my bios. Please help)

    So, I turned both on. Shut down and booted back up. When back to (F2), and found out that one of the SATA read CD-ROM. So, I set the CPU to boot from the Slax DVD, and the CPU freezes at the DELL LOGO. And, sometimes I'll get a... "Error OS Reading"

    Note: OS means Operating System right?

    I tried the Xeno Connectivity Kit, and still nothing also.

    What I'm I doing wrong?

    P.S. - Does all CPU's have a reset/reboot button, I have just one button to turn it off/on.

    Thanks in Advance!

    :lol: :roll:

    well i know on my samsung, if i boot xbox up and then reboot computer afterwards, it will just sit at the gateway logo, so try turning your xbox on after your computer boots to whatever your trying to load

    what version of hitachi?? maybe if it is not working then you are running old version of slax??(newest version 2.0 more compatible) if it is older then 78k, such as 59d, 47d, etc. i would do the 2 wire method. works everytime for me, no problems at all. i have the same pc as you, and i had trouble using slax as well. i haven't tried the new 2.0 yet though. that is why i resorted to 2 wire trick.
