I'm trying to fix my nephew's Xbox, and I am given the above message as soon as the console boots up. There is no disc in the console, and I am unable to proceed to any other screen.
Updates are sometimes included with game discs for the benefit of people without a constant internet connection, right? If I had to guess, I'd say that my nephew thoughtlessly agreed to install an update from one of his game discs, then removed the disc at some point before the update was complete. Unfortunately, it's been weeks since the issue began, so I doubt he remembers which disc that was, or even if he still has it (he sometimes rents games). Assuming that this scenario is accurate, is there a way to proceed with or abort the update without the disc he originally used?
