The error was because xboxhdm cannt unlock the HD. you are probably using a wrong eeprom or password... check if that is the eeprom from your xbox..

I got a problem! xboxhdm sees my drive when I hotswap but cant find any xbox partitions when I type xbrowser !!! Is it because the drive is still locked, because I thought a locked drive wouldnt even be seen by xboxhdm uhh.gif !!??

@daviddu54,

you dont necessarily need to install linux .. I do a lot of linux task and I am running linux in vmware.. but yah.. you need to have linux either way..

if you are new to linux then you need to learn about "initrd" images and how to make and modify them.. First, you need to mount the initrd file in linux.. after you mount that .. you will be able to see the contents inside and there will be teh scripts.. you need to open the scripts in text editor and translate them.. Theres a lots of processes so you need to research online a bit..

what I mean by root access is that "administartor" access.. in linux "root" means "admin" so you will have all the rights..

@Wingman21,

yes, xboxhdm can see the hd even if its locked.. but it wont be able to access it.. To unlock your hd easily.. copy a music track in you xbox.. in xbox dashboard, play it for 10-15 secs.. then "pause" the track and do hotswap.. always works for me..

Thanks bro... Ill try that out.
But now I got a new problem. I made myself a testing new HD with xboxhdm, and Im trying to attach it just like when hotswapping, (at the first xboxhdm menu), but linux doesnt detect it. In order for linux to detect it I must connect it before powering up my PC. So my question is: WHEN should I connect the hotswapped xbox hd during the booting process of my PC !? I start it and hit pause ?

you start and hiy pause so it will hang in black boot screen.. then you attach teh hd and hit shif or enter ..or you can connect the hotswapped hd and start the computer.. one of them will work..

i heard that using the backup feature in evo-x when you have pheonix bios loader on your xbox produces the wrong eeprom. is this also true for nkpatcher?

not true.. recently I modde my friends 1.6 xbox.. backed up the eeprom with evox and it works.. however you will get wrong eeprom if in Nkpatcher .. there is virtual eeprom enabled.. you can get eeprom from both evox and unleasx and compare them..

why dont try and find out?.. answer is no.. it doesnt xbox-hd and pc is independent of each other..but it may also depend on your computers bios.. I have seen atleast two computers that doesnt work is your turn on pc after plugging in teh HD but works if you hit pause and plug teh Hd.. however in my PC both works..

linux doesn't use the bios to access the drive, so disabling the primary ide interface in the bios (instead of just turning off autodetect) allows some systems to boot without issuing the reset that triggers drive relock

some system bios options truly disable controllers such that linux can't even see 'em, ymmv
