Thanks for the reply guys, i can understand the behavior of the boot pattern better by reading your answers. I think i have the correct file structure as my BOOT/ folder on my MC contains BOOT.ELF, CD_launch.elf, BOOT.ico and ico.sys.
it was a downloaded version of CB supposedly patched as it was saying in the .txt that came along with it. but i think its safe for me to assume that it was not patched for the exact purpose im trying to achieve but was patched to load from hdd0:/ instead of off the DVDV... hmm actually let me paste the exact structure for you before i actually attempt to re-patch the cB manually in case i had a mistake somewhere; it is as follow:
"ROOT on MC"
BAEXEC-SYSTEM/ (there is a bunch of .elf in this folder ex. 05d100.elf ...)
BESLES-00000 MP/ (there is BOOT-FREE-OSD.ELF, RUNME.ELF, ico.sys and mcp.ico)
BOOT/ (there is BOOT.ELF, CD_launch.elf, BOOT.ico and icon.sys)
PCB/ there is files for CB database ..if im not mistaken cheat, config...)
SYS-CONF/ (there is FMCB.cfg, FREEMCO.cnf, icon.sys, sysconf.ico, USBD.irx and USBHDFSD.irx.
(i made sure to paste all file names + extensions as is, caps and small char)
now i know i installed two ways of booting independently from MC. i installed first to a formated MC this Free OsDatel Boot MC V1.0 (to flash the MC using HDProject--McFlasher.elf ) and then UlaunchELF. at first after installing OsDatel the ps2 booted right away in the file browser of Ule without taking no action or without seeing any slpash screen, but then after installing Ule i could see the FREE MCboot splash screen and had to hold R1 for the browser to load (and it is still how it boots now)
cause i didnt understand exactly if i needed both or just one or the other (this stuff is a bit complicated for a neewbie like me :P) so ...with all that info i wrote, do you guys think i need to repatch CB manually or i should only change the file's structure in order for it to first boot in Ule then -> CB -> enter my cheat -> and then boot off the dvdv all this without using the USB, only MC ?
Your help is greatly appreciated since i couldnt have got this far in my understanding of all this without you help and previous post / tutorials.
