Two quick questions:

1. I am going to use the stock Xbox HD in my PC - I assume I need to unlock the drive before removing it, correct?

2. I have a 120 GB in my PC now that I will put in the XBox. Do I need to use the prepare program to zero it out, or can I just use a Slayer CD format (I've seen answers both ways)?

can't u just format it before installing it into the xbox? Then use evox to format it and partition it.

You can just hook up the drive, pop in Slayer's, and format/lock it.
