    XECUTER2 BIOS 4979 *REPACK*

    >> Team Xecuter released a repack version of their new 4979 bios:

    A group of individuals using a current setup of a LBA48 bios with a large F partition have been posting that all the data on their F data dissapeared when updating to the 4979.06
    We totally had no idea why as we've tested this on many many setups and works perfectly every time.
    Then it hit us - one very drunken member of Xecuter packed the release of 4979.06 incorrectly. It's actually 4979.67 - DOH !
    So apologies to those who've been scratching their heads over the last 24 hours heh. Don't worry using this bios wont effect your drive - simply use the correct 4979.06 in this re-packed release.

    Here is why the F data dissapeared:
    This ONLY affects users with these setups: If you had a bios with LBA48 patches before and had one BIG F: drive (partition 6 only) and the drive was above 137 gig
    If you then use 4979.06 you would get an F: and a G: - this would cut your F: to 137 gig and therefore make your directories table invalid bringing you an empty F: drive that is smaller than before and some space behind that could be a G: drive

    Moral to this story - less alcohol when coding and packing ;)

    X2 4979 *NFO Fix*

    >> From the readme/nfo...

    It seems we didn't word our nfo correctly
    and are being jumped on for not releasing the LBA48 hack under GPL. Below is how it should have been worded. Apologies to those that got offended.

    We have also implemented the LBA48 concept originally discovered by OzPaul. Coded in C we used the same principals to get LBA48 working efficiently without using any of his GPL code (We should add the sources given to us a couple of months ago were beta and not with ANY GPL notice and used with OzPaulb's permission). For those that are interested we didn't use OzPaulb's partitioning system (read partition from hdd block 0) or the highcode/lowcode system. This hack is now embedded into our X2 source so you can use two versions of our bios.
    One for LBA48 6 and one for LBA 48 6+7 (LBA48 6 is one large F partition - recommened for new HD installs, and LBA48 6+7 is for those who want to extend your current F drive to its larger size without losing any data). For those who dont know you were previousley limited to a 137GB drive - now you can have up to 2 TB :) (2199023255040 bytes) or 2000 Gb for the *ahem* uninformed.

    The hack is still entirley credited to OzPaulb.
