Am pretty new to the xbox, was told the xbox media center makes and excellent and highly versatie player, hence purchased an old one and was trying to get it up and running.

I downloaded SlaYers 2.7 and followed the SlaYers_EvoX_Auto-Installer_v2.6FINA guide's advice and selected 3b) New Install/ Full Rebuild - Retail Hd then and then selected 3b1) Full Install/New Rebuild HD - 5960. After which the guide indicates that we should reboot minus the slayers iso cd and the evox dashboard should start up on boot. However, I'm just getting an error in various languages that "Your Xbox requries service" and a 16 at the top left corner. Have since tried all options from installing evox dash on any hd to install/restore m$dash but nothing seems to work, not even formatting the hard drive.

At this point, I would just like a means to get my dashboard or any dashboard back. A proper noob guide to getting xbmc up and running on the xbox would just be a bonus. Any takers?
