Hi Long time reader, first time poster. I am unsure though if this is the proper place to put this thread. I also do not know what information is needed, so I will attempt to spew out anything that may seem relevent. Here it goes: I acquired a version 1.1 xbox. I have a friend that had previously modded his xbox, so I am borrowing his materials. It involves SID4 N-Knave Edition and James Bond. I can go through bond and get into the SID 4 install no problem. As the tutorial said, I attempt to create a backup of EEPROM and MS. There are no problems with EEPROM backup, but I cannot do the MS backup. The ms backup fails out and says: Batch process failed. The last item was: FOUND EXISTING SOFTMOD. Action Rename. SID 4 won't do the softmod without the MS backup, but I cannot seem to do the MS backup because is apparently already modded. I also do not feel comfortable doing the Uninstall Softmod, because it says it will use E:\backup, which there is no such directory. Just in case if there are questions, here is my directory listing: C:\ AUDIO\ default.xip dvd.xip jkeyboard.xip Keyboard.xip mainmenu5.xip Memory2.xip memory_files2.xip Message.xip music2.xip music_copy3.xip Music_PlayEdit2.xip settings3.xip settings_adoc.xip Settings_Clock.xip settings_language.zip settings_list.xip settings_panel.xip settings_parental.xip settings_timezone.zip settings_video.xip XBox Book.xtf Xbox.xtf xboxdash.xbe E:\ CACHE\ TDATA\ UDATA\ So it sounds like my retail xbox is borked since it cannot backup MS. Could there just be a couple of files that I could delete/rename to make this retail? Would there be another installer that can help me out in this situation?
