    I have this original Xbox i never used for some time (something like 12 - 14 years). Lets just cut to the chase.

    It's missing a Hard Drive.

    It has a mod chip in it.

    I have 2 hard drives i am going to use either the 100GB or 500GB.

    What i get when i turn it on:

    I turn on the Xbox and i get an Error 16.

    I put the Hard Drive in and it gives me an Error 7.



    Why is it giving me this errors if it has a mod chip?

    How do i get the system working again? Do i need some recovery disc? Auto Installer? Give me something easy.

    I burned a program called Slayer EvoX on to a DVD-R.

    I put the disk on the Xbox and nothing. I still get the errors.

    What modchip do you have?

    Error 16 it can't set the clock date and time. This has happened also after you've formatted your HDD. You said it was missing, so I presume you get this error when you don't plug the HDD in?

    Error 7 is a time out on the HDD. So what HDD are you using. Are you using ide drive or sata with ide to sata adapter?

    I have no idea what Mod Chip it has. All i know is it's green and squared shaped and it has colored wires running down to the motherboard that are soldered on to it.

    I am using a empty 100GB IDE seagate. I wiped the hard drive for use on the Xbox.

    I get the error 16 when i plug the HDD.

    If i plug it and turn it on

    I get Error 7.

    Look. I have the CD with the burned Slayer EvoX thingy.

    Please tell me there is way to bring this Xbox back to live.

    I've never done this sort of stuff so i am not too familiar with Modding and the Programs and all that sort of stuff.

    Re
    The hdd is missing the dashboard files.
    That is the reason why it won't boot. (also try a different hdd)
    And use a HeXen DVD to install the dashboards.

    Why not the slayer CD? Also how do you know the modchip is even working? I insert the disk and nothing happens i still get that error 16 with the hard drive.

    No dashboard. The drive needs formated, partitioned, dashboard, and locked with the console specific key.

    Know of a way to enable the chip? ... The Xbox wasne't mine it was one of my relatives Xbox. But i remember it worked. But now its mine. But it didn't have a Hard Drive and it keeps getting those errors but know i have 2 of those old IDE hard drives. I know that it has to do with the darn dashboard files. But now what i want to know is how do i get the modchip running? The Xbox appears to be doing nothing when i insert the disk it just stays in the error screen.

    Could the chip be bad?

    Do you want to me to post a picture of the mod chip?

    But it has a mod chip. Woudn't a modchip+cd just allow me to format the drive? I know what you are talking about it's called the EEPROM. I don't think i need it if it has a modchip.

    It should. Here's what I want you to do. Check the jumper on the hdd your using. Make sure it's set to master/single. Then try using hexen as @DarkGabbz suggested.

    The drive doesn't need to be locked when a modchip is installed.

    I know this. I skimmed the thread when I posted. He quoted me and said it had a chip. Thats why I changed my suggestion.

    The way to Use/Enable the modchip depend on what chip you have. Try booting while holding a button on your Joystick. Or if you have a switch in the back of the Xbox, on some model it was possible to have 2 dashboards (official/hacked). so if you wanted to play online on OF you hit the switch and the modchip go to stealth mode.

    I migth have some old files on my server I'll have a look.

    Sorry for my bad english !

    You can't enable chips with the gamepad there is a physical button for turning it on or off on like on a Xecuter chip.

    Thats a early modchip and a v1.0 console give me some time to figure out which chip this is.
    It is an old xecuter 2 chip and remove that clock cap.
    And can you give me a picture of the boot screen.
