    Where can I buy a sata cable to flash my 360
    Or do I just disconnect the one in the xbox from the mother board and dvd drive and use that?



    Also how do you do the hair dryer method and where is the warranty sticker located?

    Do they sell these at places like best buy, staples or walmart. I sorta want to flash it today and those are the only stores around. Also do I have to have a special sata card. I have an old 2001 Dell computer I will be using, do you think it has the right sata card? Also where is it usually located.

    depends on your drive, like old Hitachi's can be flashed with pretty much anything, not sure about the other drives. As for the sata cable, you could try but the damn thing is short as hell so I would recommend you just go buy one, they are like $3.
