Someone managed to boot Windows 98 through XDSL on the xbox a while ago. So by first booting linux on it and thereafter launch windows.

However there are not real drivers for almost anything in the xbox so it is not running efficiently.

Here's some info for you:

A complete tutorial on how to get Win 98 to boot:

A little more:

However if you really want some sort of pc functionality on your xbox I would recommend you to use any xbox linux dist instead as they have been optimized and tweaked for the xbox.

I would not even dare tainting my xbox with the shotty win98 hack. If you want a desktop, use linux. Much more xbox support, and works flawlessly.

the reason i want windows is because I have a TON of old school roms and emulators and things that will only run on windows. If you guys can show me a few really good emulators that run on linux for nes, snes, ..... Then i may be persuaded to just use linux. Also i will need a tutorial on how to do this. Thanks.

Someone hacked win98 to run on the xbox. It runs like poop and has no support. Do not use it.

Linux is another OS that is more stable than win98. It has also been modified to run on the xbox. It runs great and has good support.

If you want to have an Operating System on the xbox, use linux and not windows.

http://www.xbox-linux.org/wiki/Main_Page <---about linux
http://www.xbox-linux.org/wiki/Download <--downloads (ubuntu and debian are my favorite)

You will need to flash a bios on the xbox to boot linux. Do you have a modchip, and does it support multiple bios?

You can suggest places to buy chips. It just can't be from a place you work or get referral points from. The second parts forbids users from advertising to sell their chips or purchasing them from other members. Nobody wants to be responsible if a member screws you over, and the forum doesn't want to track or give out confidential info because you broke a rule.

I used to get my chips from mods4less.com, but they are gone (they had the cheapest prices).

You can try getting an xecuter 2.6 ce from http://www.modchipstore.com/. They are about $30+shipping.

You can swap the dvd-rom with any system, only hard-drives are locked. If you meant that you wanted to use a custom dvd-rom, well, I am not sure about that but I do know originals will not work.

Once you flash a hacked firmware to the modchip, you will be able to swap and format the hard drive ans use your own.
