  1. my xbox will start but not load dash board... the error code is 16 and 21. I know that means the dashboard went kaput or something like that and is there any way to get a cd or something to get it back?
    Thanks

    The links don't work. Thanks for trying. If it helps the light flashes green and red when its on after the animation sequence.

    Link works fine try again, type it in your browser instead imo.

    The guy is voiding his warranty thou as he is taking it apart and modifying/fixing it, but the Xbox is old so I doubt it has one left as is.

    The link for the Youtube video works, however, the links that the poster provides in order to get the "repair disk" doesn't work. I think they are looking for a recovery disk, a reinstall of dashboard after installing a new hard drive in the console.

    *another acct ftw* I forgot the password to the other one. Yes we need a recovery and repair disk... Any ideas if Microsoft still makes those? The old HDD failed anyway
