This is probably a problem with the way you have the xbox modded. 
With the cromwell bios it detected my install on the E: drive but if
you have it setup another way you might have to use a boot cd.  The
iso's come with Xebian.

I probably still have a few gmail invites.
Drop me a line (off list) if you'd like an account.
