Man, I'll take that seed as long as your willing.  I've had nothing but issues with trying to get this.  I've tried Usenet with a couple of pars only to have what others have run into with 3 files appearing to corrupt the archive, same ones as others above.  I've tried everything to repair those files.   I was also downloading the torrent but has been really slow for me.  For some reason the wife decided it was a good time to move the PC I had going and unplugged the HD.  Now the file is stuck checking at around 2.5% and stuck and I can only think its corrupt from the HD pull.  Makes me want to cry as I had 3 days left. So once again I stated a fresh torrent download and only getting around 1.5mb-maybe 2mb.  It'll spike higher to 4-5 but rests at the previous rate and looking to take 2 weeks.  I cap at around 12mb wide open with my internet.  I really wish that re-archive and re-upload to Usenet would happen to give that another shot.  The current Nzb should be pulled so people don't waste their bandwidth unless its just me and a few others are having the CRC check issues.

I also saw you responded in the other install thread, I might need help, unsure until I can try with the image.  My understanding from the comments thread on the release page is that I need to throw the drive in my xbox with an x3, format, expand F: and G: to 927 each, remove drive then image with PC and HHD raw.  Maybe its just an x3 issue you have to do that.  I also have a TSOP and a few softmodded xboxs for testing this image out too and it might act different with those.

When it has finished downloading just use that hdd raw copy program to write the image (it took 12 hours) and just put in the xbox there's no need to set partitions as the image is an exact 1:1 copy of the original. your chip boots first so it should not matter, (I'm using Ind bios so did wonder about the config file on c: but it just loads to default so it don't matter)

Thanks for the reply.  I did find it odd as I would think that format/partitioning it first would be overwritten by the sector by sector copy.  Would think the image along with formatting and partitioning tables would just copy from the raw image and essentially wipe the previous.  Thanks for the heads up on the Ind bios, that's what I have on my TSOP.

Yes it blows my mind that these files are still available for download...I have downloaded the 15oo Gig NZB listed here down twice (the silly download that had zero repair files), I also have downloaded the 2nd NZB link that had the tons of PAR2 repair files and I can guarantee you that both of these downloads have errors on 0574, 1805, and 1826.....downloaded 4.5 terabyte of crap for nothing. What a joke. I have a 100 megabit down connection but the torrent says it'll take 29 days, my guess people get to 100% then quit. These links just make this site look bad at this point just take them down.

Yeah, seems to be having the same issue as Ultraplex.  Drive doesn't seem to be recognizing partitions but really not sure how to sort it.  Also have an X3.  If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears.

I've been watching this thread for awhile and wanted to ask if someone who has successfully downloaded the Torrent (which I can't ever seem to get past X% after trying for a week now) could just upload it to Usenet? Or someone with a working image from elsewhere? In the spirit of being an OG xbox fan supporting others?

At this point I have tried downloading the usenet package twice, have downloaded the other missing files, and it's like musical chairs trying to extract and finding a non corrupt archive. Every-time I did a par check it was some different file and it takes 6 hours to complete to tell me. So I go find that missing file or sometimes 6 files and re-run and it's some other 4 files now that are corrupt. Tried un-archiving and it fails at like 54% and takes 3 hours to get to that point on a core i9 processor dropping the image to a high speed disk.

What would be helpful is if someone with the working image could help us all out and re-upload it to Usenet or Mega. That way we can all join in on the fun here, continue to improve this project, make changes and share with the community. Otherwise it's just going to be available to people who sell these drives on ebay for overinflated prices. Thanks

I'm having the same G: Unavailable issue. How to fix this problem?
Could write the image 100% it's booting but can't play any games.
I guess because the G: drive isn't seen.

 

I have an aladin ex modchip

Do you have a bios installed that supports F and G partitions? When you tsop or flash your chip you should have options of different bioses to install.

 

Flashed the chip with m8 bios. Now it works. So that was the solution!
