So I got really luck and picked up a white Xbox dev kit at my local Goodwill-style thift store (Deseret Industries if you must know) for $12. And I've got some questions:
Is this a DVT3 or a DVT4? It does seem to have a plastic jewel which would indicate a DVT4 however the bottom says that its a Prototype and was made in Aug '01 which if I understand correctly would make it a DVT3.
It also looks like someone has taken it a part and pulled the DVD drive, and completely unhooked the 2 daughterboards and removed them from the case (they were still with the Xbox but they where just bouncing around inside. On that note do I need to hook them back up to the mobo for the dev kit to work properly? Are the two daughterboards even needed any more?
I tried booting it up with the daughterboards disconnected and a donor DVD drive from a Xbox with a dead power supply. It booted past the flubber animation but stops and gives me an Error 16 service screen. As I understand it error 16 is the dashboard clock needing to be set but it can't boot the dashboard to set it. Any idea on how to fix this?
Is there a way to dump the HD and see whats on it with out having to have it boot up to the XDK Dash?
For kicks here are some images I've taken of it:
