So, I did the EvoX backup on my original HD, ran LiveInfo on the new disk, all is good.
I pull the computer apart, remove my cables, and plug in the Xbox HD as Master on IDE 0, and and the new HD as Master on IDE 1. No other devices present.
I boot off a floppy, run ATAPWD, and I only see the new HD. I reboot, look in the BIOS. It shows up there. Try ATAPWD again...and the Xbox HD still doesn't even show. I run hdunlock as well, just to see if it's a glitch with ATAPWD, but that also reports that the drive is MIA.
Using Cable Select instead of Master changes nothing.
The mobo I'm running on is an Intel P3 board...815E I think. I remember reading bits about 820/815 chipsets not liking ATAPWD very much. Could this be my problem?
I'm gonna put my work computer back together and try this on my Athlon at home. Hopefully that fixes things.

Here's what I'd like to know....
Is it possible to do this using the bert and ernie exploit? (Through Mechassault) and the newest EvoX?
PS: I dont know how/want to solder in order to flash the bios to a new Evox one...anyone know a way to flash the bios with software also? Without having to solder anything...?

Few things I did different:
- Never used hddisabl.exe on the original harddrive, i just ghosted the original drive to the source drive after using just hdunlock. That way when I powered down, the original was locked again... without the worry of possibly having trouble relocking (as some people mention in these forums).
- I was unable at first to relock my drive with hdlock.exe. Every time I went to lock it, I got a + under the E in atapwd, but not the L. I eventually tried unlockx, which did the same thing as atapwd, except that it said that I need to restart the computer before locking will take place. So I restarted... and checked atapwd, and it was locked
So I imagine that second point is a potential solver for those that are having trouble relocking their original drive. Btw, I used a WD400EB... which is the same as the stock western digital drive, except with 32GB more.

Thanks for the pointers, af12345. I will add them.
There is often the problem with the wrong eeprom being used. If you cannot seem to get the new HD to unlock in the xbox, then your eeprom may be wrong. There are sometimes issues with evox giving the wrong eeprom. To my experience the 007 hack gives the correct eeprom while the audio/font hack does not (anyone confirm this?). If one hack gives you the wrong key, try a different hack.
