OK, i'm modding my friends x-box with a xecutor 2.2 lite w/pogo pins. I've already done mine with a solder xecutor 2.2 lite and dumped a 120 gig maxtor into it with out a problem. I got the mod chip installed and working, got it flashed with evox D6. When i swap the drive from the original seagate to the maxtor, even with the slayer installer disk in the dvd-rom, it just takes me to the error 7 screen. Is it possible the drive itself is bad, because it's brand new, or did i miss something along the way in my install. I did it the same way i remember doing mine and i didn't have any problems with that.

I have a very similar problem. My hard drive just randomly started giving me error 7. I even tried replacing it and still got error 7. I know the jumper settings are correct because my hard drive has been working for a while. I checked all the cables, even used a new IDE cable and I still get the error. Anyone have any suggestions?


Btw, you dont have to lock your hard drive if you are using a mod chip. If you aren't modded you will need the drive locked.
