 bios loads a list to select what bios would you like to load from the hard drive
keyboard and mouse
replace boot video
replace the cd rom no need to keep original hooked up
allow xbox to run like pc and think the video card is geforce fx
cpu and video card over clock      hey it could happen one day lol
maybe bios support to run just like psx or dream cast
hehe i can go on forever

There's some work being done on this.

X2 BIOS already allows you to remove the DVD-ROM drive and successfully boot.  Adding another HD to that IDE channel and using both is a huge BIOS hack.

What does this even mean??

Why in the world would you want to reduce the performance to that of a PSX or DC?

 I would love a bios that turns off the screen (or loads a simple screen saver) after about 5m of playing a game if no buttons are pressed.  XBMP and EVOx have this feature, but built into the bios would be ideal in my eyes.

 A bios that allows dynamic switching of drives based on shortcut commands givin by individual applications/programs.  Basically a built in switch for extra harddrives and dvd drives would be really really sweet.

This would require additional hardware augmentation, as well.

 Yes, it would.  It would require a custom IDE cable right?  But still, the ability to switch dynamically in the bios would be cool would it not?

 Donno about the possibility, but wouldn't it be nice to access your bios like on a pc, to disable/enable or change certain features? I know it can be done by creating a new one but it would be nice if you didn't need a to flash your bios anytime you want to change a feature.

I guess you don't understand the nature of a flash ROM.  You need to flash it to make alterations.

 The ability for the BIOS to read certain settings off an ini file on the hard drive, so that it would be possible to modify the actions of the BIOS without reflashing each time.

You can already doing that using a debug bios.

Do a search if you're really interested in it. smile.gif
