Error 6 = Cannot unlock hard drive

Either you're using the wrong hard drive in the Xbox (like a stock hard drive from another Xbox), or you've locked your hard drive with the wrong password. Please explain what you are trying to do.

Good, at least you used a floppy. Use any text editor (like Notepad) to open the log files. Write down or print out all of the passwords that you've used. Now you can use either UnLockX (which you have to do twice), OR you can run hdunlock and then hddisabl. You don't use hdlock to unlock a drive.

If you don't have hdunlock and hddisabl, you can get them here:
hdlock/hdunlock/hddisabl (X-S)

This one is incorrect, and probably the one you used:

C65DCADCADC0BDF1C30E1DB6F240FCC66694D0FE

Use this password with hdunlock/hddisabl or UnLockX.

I can tell because you repeated the same pattern twice by mistake:

C65DCADC0BDF1C30E1DB6F240FCC66694D0FE78F
C65DCADCADC0BDF1C30E1DB6F240FCC66694D0FE

Also, the correct one matches the one listed under HDDPW.

Make a dos bootdisk with unlockx on it. Attach your harddisk to your primary ide cable and make sure there are no other drives attached to your primary or secondary ide cable. Now start unlockx in dos.

Choose your locked drive and unlock it with the key Grospolina said.

Goodluck

Maybe try this:

C65DCADCADC0BDF1C30E1DB6F240FCC66694D0FE78F

I added the last three characters, which you probably typed, but was then cut off. Maybe they need to be there? I kinda doubt it, but it probably wouldn't hurt to try.
