Ok, I just got my hands on a x3 chipped mod xbox with the control panel...it played for a few days but the hard drive eventually failed..I have my hands on a brand new seagate 500gig hard drive. I have experience in softmod but not chipped boxes. I can't back up any of the files on the old drive because it won't even run. I am just looking for assistance on how to go about this process. Again i'm new to chips so I am not sure what to do right now..Please help...you guys have been fantastic before in helping me out so I chose to turn back to a reliable source after unsuccessful engine searches. Thank you in advance.
