The one that started it all, back in 2001 Microsoft entered the console market with their Xbox system. It was the most advanced console of the sixth generation of gaming! Talk about the original console in this section!
I got a free original Xbox from a coworker a few weeks ago. She said that the hard drive was locked, but I think she got confused because the video cord on the composite cords was damaged, and so nothing displayed on the television. (I did hear audio though.) I got a Xbox to HDMI adapter and removed the disc that was inside the disc drive. It booted up just fine, looks like only a few emulators are on the hard drive so I'll have to add more to it! I need to take it apart and clean it, the fans are quite noisy and I'm sure the thermal paste needs replacing. From what I gather it's a 1.6, so thankfully the clock capacitor shouldn't be leaking but I'll have to see if anything else might be leaking. (Hopefully not because other than it being noisy, the console works fine and reads discs fine too!) I can't wait to start looking into possibly getting a bigger hard drive down the road, and installing a newer mod someday too!
