Use Error Recovery mode to look at Q:\system\keymap.xml and replace it if needed.

But what could have gone wrong while installing?
I can't get into Error Recovery Mode either. it justs says "key code detected for Error Recovery Mode" than it says IP and port and press any button to reboot.

That is recovery mode, it gives you the opportunity to ftp into the xbox and fix any errors. If you do as Dan suggests and copy the file over to replace your existing one in your userdata folder it should fix your problem. As for what went wrong I really don't know, sounds as though you may have a corrupt keymap file? What softmod installer disc are you using?

I've apparently fixed the keymap error now. But now i can't figure out how to solves this error : "No suitable skin version found We require at least version 2.1000" I've put a recent PRoject Mayhem in both E and Q skin folder, but the error keeps appearing.
I'm sorry for asking so much, but I'm new to this whole thing.

Hold down both thumbsticks (clicked) when launching or booting XBMC. This will cause a screen to pop up asking you if you want to reset your settings (including the active skin) to the system defaults. c/p from the wiki

That works, I guess I should have checked the wiki before asking.
Thanks everybody for the quick help!

I would like to start off by profusely apologizing for being a necromancer.

Secondly, I just got this error. I FTP'd into the xbox and discovered that the system folder in XBMC had no contents, and I cannot transfer files into the xbox without it hiccuping for ages and eventually just disconnecting.

Has my box died? :(

Edit: Got a backup copy working. Buuuut my F:/ drive is gone. What do I do?
