I used a soft mod. When i loaded it i unlocked the hd now its all messed up. I got my xbox apart and i got xboxhdm and made a bootable floopy to relock the hard drive. When i attache the hard drive and finish the boot the disk runs thru it tells me it has shut down and then to restart. what have i done wrong. Do i have to make a bootable cdrom and if so what files must i add to it. I dont want to lose my data on the hd please help uhh.gif

i think that it checks to see if the hdd is locked before it will boot a disc (meaning you cant boot a disc until the hdd is locked), but i could be wrong.

if you cant get it locked, you can always try doing it through your computer.

The xbox checks to see if the hd is locked like the way it should be then it unlocks the hd and then loads the m$ dash then loads the game if present if in the drive. am i right about this or have i got it wrong? This all works nice if you have the hd locked or running a hacked dash like evox but since i am running the origanl bios and dash and my hd is unlocked M$ checks for the lock since its not locked i get error message 5. If i make the iso what files need to be added to the iso before burning or why my bootable floopy is not working.

(i didnt know xbhdm was on the computer)

so, i think you can pull out your hdd and put it into your computer and run it through xbhdm like mynuffinfutsitch was saying

Ya that is what i am doing but with xboxhdm there is a make bootale floopy to lock unlock, I wanted to do this then try to figure out what files i need to make the bootable cd. But when o connect the xbox hd to the computer and let it boot up the computer tells me that its "shuting down" the hd and then it says "restart"
then nothing happens. what am i doing or do i have to make the bootable cd.
