I'd doubt it. Most (if not all) of the "boot CDs" for XBox are fakes. Even now, I have yet to personally come across a legitimate, working boot CD for the PS2 and it is a much older system relatively (meaning there's been more time to crack the system and make a working disc).

As I understand it, the ONLY way to boot Xbox back-ups is with a modchip and those are supposed to self-boot, so there's no need for a boot disc or swap disc. If whomever you're getting it from will allow it, I'd suggest testing it out first, to see it actually boot a game. If it turns out such a thing has been made and works, I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a copy of it.


Keep me posted.

No, the Swap Magic CD's are used in conjunction with some of the cheeper, less featured chips. So you still need a chip to use them. (It's a bit more technical than that, if you want to find out, just look in the PS2 section.)
