Ok, this is from a xbox mod gone wrong a few months ago. Anyway I tried to do the bert and ernie mod and pheonix bios and after that everything went wrong. Now I am at the point that when I boot the box i get an error 21. I then try to hotswap the drive to change everything back to normal. I have the HD hooked to the box, I boot the box, then when it boots I plug the HD to the computer and boot the computer, when it boots it says the drive is locked and i need to enter a password. I have also tried to boot the xbox and the computer then swapping them, that does not work either. Now I do not have the eeprom or anything at this point. However I do have the original xbox taht does not seem to be unlocking it. My main question is y is my xbox not unlocking the drive when it is booting and is there anything I can do about it.
I am willing to buy a modchip if taht will fix my problems. If I need to do this which one should I get. I feel the smartxx for Xecuter 3 would be the best choice.
I have searched the forums for hours adn it looks like I am pretty much out of luck without the eeprom.
For reference here is the original problem:http://forums.xbox-s...opic=161564&hl=
