|I think you can put the unlocked HD into another modded xbox and lock it and replace it into the other xbox|
DO NOT DO THIS!!!
Yes the harddrive code IS specific to the xbox it came from. You will need to lock the harddrive on the xbox it will be used in.
Since you have no backup of the key or eeprom available, my suggestion would be to put your modchip in his xbox so you can boot it again.

anyways, I think you might need to get yourself a cheapmod, or a matrix or something, just to boot the machine, reflash his BIOS. Then just take off the modchip, and that HDD you installed should work just fine.
I still got my trusty (shitty) Matrix on a shelf for such occassions

I don't know if its an old bios, when it used to boot up it showed matrix inside.Thats why i assumed that he had an mod chip(matrix) installed. So in short there's no other way to lock the drive again without installing an real mod chip?
