Network adapter/HDD incompatability?
Network adapter/HDD incompatability? –
I'm running this same exact setup except my PS2 is a v4.
Yet I still get the freeze at the splash screen. I read around and noticed that some of the newer Seagates would do this if coupled with older network adapters.
How do I know which adapter is older or newer, and which adapter is most likely to work with this setup?
Did you use a retail, unpatched copy of HDLoader or HDAdvance? I ask because Zero-X found a bug in the older versions of HDLPatch which, "caused HDL to crash if one patched it with the date/time patches WITHOUT using 48bit patch."
I haven't heard of the issue with "newer" Seagate drives you described, but I don't think the model ST380013A-RK drive in your link is particularly new. Then again, if there is such an issue, I don't know which drives might be affected. Good luck.
I'm using the SKS Apps version of HDA, and I also tried the PS2OwnZ version of HDL. Both of them freeze.
I'm not familair with those versions, but you may want to try an unpatched copy of either HDLoader or HDAdvance. If the versions you have used are patched as decribed in my previous post, that may be the source of the problem.
How can I tell if it's unpatched?
An unpacked, unpatched copy of HDLoader should be 2,977,792 bytes in size.
Found one. I was looking for ISOs.
What do I do with the ELF file?

You could either run it directly (assuming your PS2 is set up appropriately) or create a bootable disc containing the ELF.
I don't have a mod chip or anything. I've been using the old swap trick to load up the other versions. How exactly could I run it directly?
How do you make a bootable CD with the elf on it? Got a link to a tutorial or something?
