Hello! I'd post this in the XBOX forum room but there doesn't seem to be that option anymore. I've been following jonbtrinis wonderful guide for upgrading the HD on a softmodded xbox (I'd place a link, but I'm a new user. It's the first result when you Google "Upgrading HD on Softmodded Xbox Tutorial"), but I've run into a problem and no matter where I look I cant find the answer. I found xboxhdm 1.9 on xbins, backed up my eeprom using evox, FTPd the contents of my C & E drives into their respective linux folders in the xboxhdm folder, ran the .bat iso maker and burned an iso to a CD-R. I've ensured my hard drive is compatible with XBOX and is lockable (I bought an 80gb Western Digital, Model # WD800JB-00JJC0), and have ensured that it is running as the primary Master drive. I also unplugged any other hard drives in my computer. When I boot from the CD-R boot disc I made, the initial menu shows up. I press "1" and "enter", and the linux OS begins to boot up. However, it is freezing during boot up with the following text: ACPI: Processor [P004] (supports C1) i2c-core.o: i2c core module version 2.6.1 (20010830) 12c-dev.o: i2c /dev entries driver module version 2.6.1 (20010830) i2c-proc.o version 2.6.1 (20010830) cesafb: framebuffer at 0xcf000000, mapped to 0xf8843000, size 3072k vesafb: mode is 1024x768x16, linelength=2048, pages=1 vesafv: protected mode interface info at c000:bdc0 vesafb: scrolling: redraw vesafb: directcolor: size=0:5:6:5, shift=0:11:5:0 Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 128x48 fb0: VESA VGA frame buffer device pty: 256 unix98 ptys configured Real Time Clock Driver v1.10f Non-volatile memory driver v1.2 Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present?(ed) keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present?(f4) RAMDISK driver initialized: 16 RAM disks of 24000k size 1024 blocksize loop: loaded (max 8 devices) forcedeth.c: Reverse Engineered nForce ethernet driver.

Could it be because I'm using a CD-R and not a CD-RW? Ive tried pulling xboxhdm from two different sources and I've burned two different boot disks (one at maximum burn speed, one at minimum). At this point I'm at a loss. The text above is largely Greek to me, so I'm having a hard time determining where things went wrong. Any help is greatly appreciated, and thank you for your time! I hope I included all the needed information in my query. If I left any pertinent information, please let me know!
