Okay, for those that might not have remembered, I previously had two OG Xbox systems, both 1.6... one of them had error 05, and the other had error 16. One of them got that error because I accidentally unlocked the hard drive for the console before turning it off, and thus it now doesn't want to boot. The other just started having that error before I could do anything with it. More recently, I tried running the soft-mod process on the unlocked-drive again to see if that would do anything... much to my dismay, no it did not. But anyway, managed to pick up a lot of four more to salvage... a couple of 1.0's, a 1.6, and a 1.6b system. To get it out of the way, all four newly acquired systems were able to successfully soft-mod, with some... caveats. One of the four systems ended up on EvoX dashboard, while everything else received UnleashX... with the same disc using the generic installer. (Q1) How did that happen? And is there a way to give it UnleashX dashboard instead, since I at least am familiar enough with that one to tune it accordingly? (Q2) All four systems started with disc drives that did not want to open - an equal amount of Samsung and Thomson drives. Post fix-up and soft-mod, and basically a matter of taking the drive belts out of each, putting them in a cup of soapy water and microwaving them to a boil for 30 seconds, two of the freshly salvaged systems are indeed operating normally again (mostly); the other two, still will not open and close normally when the system is assembled. What else can I do to revive those drives? (Q3) What other things can I do to revive the original, e5/e16 systems to get those working again?
