    So my bios won't boot with a USB drive so i need to use the NTfS DOS method. i did everything with IPREP and then i turn on my pc and xbox at the same time. i go to c: cd iprep and then i connect the sata cable. when i type idump xxxxxxx xxxxx then there stands:
    1.IDE pri. drive ...
    2.Xtreme sec.master
    3.Xtreme sec.slave

    so i pick 2 and then there stands reading 01% and like 5 sec. later there stands: control-break pressed: abort idump.bat (YES/NO/ALL) ?

    No mater wich one i pick it keeps getting stuck.
    also when i put my drive on my sata 0 port and my hardisk into sata 1 it can't type anyrhing more in dos nor press enter button.

    PLEASE HELP ME!

    When the drive choices come up i.e 1 2 and 3.

    Turn off your xbox, hit the drive 1 2 or 3. Count 10 secs, turn the 360 on and it should dump.

    Remember to idump before you iflash.

    I tried to do that like 20 times but it won't work.
    There stands:
    make your choice:2
    port:d000 master/slave a0
    _
    or something like that, and then nothing happens

    Thx for the help btw.

    the bad flash method or 10 second trick can only be used with via chipsets
    Go buy a via 6421A or L

    Can't my problem be solved in an other way?

    If you know what type of chipset your currently using, there is a list of known compatible chipsets that can be used to flash(search for it). Your controller might quite simply not be compatible. The via card can be bought for pretty cheap.
    There are many other threads that state same problem that you have. most went and bought the card and most succeeded on the first try.
    What makes me believe it isnt compatible also is that with the ms25 you dont need to do the badflash 10 second method to get it to flash anyways. (That case being that the drive hasnt been flashed with Xtreme 4.2 or higher).
