    Hi J666GAK :),

    You may need to reconsider using a 360 as a car PC. Although the OS is fast enough to use for small tasks, it is currently running at an effective speed of 233Mhz. Unless you intend to use USB speakers, there is no sound, and videos will only play in Ubuntu. Windows will pick up the wifi adaptor and any other USB device, the main problem is drivers. Even on full installations of Vista and XP, there are no drivers for the 360 wifi adaptor, so that won't work. I had only one problem installing XP, that being the speed and ram requirements of the OS. I eventually found a copy of TinyXP (can't give an address here, I have MSN though), and that installed OK, except I had to do it through my Mac (PC will do it too :)).

    I'm not trying to put you off this car project, but if a 360 doesn't do it, there are plenty of affordable specialised car PCs out there :D.


    Troy,

    This thread is very old, I think there is a tutorial on XP in the tutorials forum. There is TinyXP as well...

    Try not to post one right after the other. You can EDIT your post and add text to it. I added your about 2 minute later post to your first one... That is another form of DOUBLE posting, and it tells people you're just trying to get your post count up. I dock post counts for ALL forms of double posting...

    Actually, it makes perfect sence and no one else seems to be having a problem. The tutorial section of these fourms is not very large, thus finding the correct guide to installing linux on your Xbox 360 is in no way difficult. Added the fact that all of my tutorials are quite visible, on the first page.

    Furthermore, I mean no disrespect, but if you have come here just to flame people who post their tutorials and other forms of assistance, you are not welcome.

    Also, as a general guideline: There are many ways to take an active role in the community. Spending your time assaulting mods/admins is not one of them.


    Just talking from experience buddy ;)

    Aww... I wanted my 300th post to be more useful :(.

    I am having the same problem with another user, who DEMANDS to know how to "MAKE" your Xbox360 play backups. Apparently, the tutorials allude him...
