A:Unlock it with the correct EEPROM.
More Detail:Each xbox has it's own hdd key. This key is used to unlock the drive. This is independant of the bios. You can however use a linux bios and it will unlock a drive if you find you can not get an eeprom to unlock the drive. If you take a hdd from another xbox it will not work if it was locked when removed becuase your xbox would not have the secret key to be able to read it.
Q:im not sure what kinda box i could use to unlock the harddrive.
A:You can ONLY use the box that locked it.
Q:i dont think any of these boxes will read the drive, is there a way i can do it through linux on a computer?
A:Yes Linux might unlock the drive but you would need to power the drive with a computer and then turn on the xbox and run the linux bios and after it unlocked the drive turn off the xbox and run config magic and then lock the drive. Power down the xbox and then power down the computer put the xbox drive back onto the computer and go from there.
Use a save game exploit with the drive installed in to the other computer. And use that to unlock it. That is if you have MA or 007:AUF or Splinter Cell.

i understand everything about the hdd key and eeprom, but i cant get this hardrive to work in any of the xbox's ive tried, it automatically goes to the error 6 screen on mine, and gives me a different code when i put it on his.
im gonna try the linux bios thing and see if it works. i have to read over what you typed again, but it looks like thats the only thing that is going to work for me. i cant change the eeprom or hdd key on the harddrive, if i cant get it to boot. your help is greatly appreciated, i hope the linux bios works so i can change the eeprom.hd key from there.

You can also try to use your computer to unlock it with this program.

What can I do? I can only boot my xbox via a different 120gb hd so would this give me a useable password? Ive downloaded the "hddunlock.zip" file and read about the password, OR are the passwords locked to the hd and not the box?
if I put a locked MS hd into an unmoded v1.0 box it just frags without an error message, is this right?

If you are putting a drive in a xbox and it frags then it could be some other problem normaly the xbox tries to unlock the drive if it can not see the drive it will give you an error message and not do a bios dump. That is what the FRAG is it tries to boot the bios and if it can not read the bios or if the bios is not a compadable it will then stop reboot and try agian. this will happen 3 times if after the 3rd time it does not boot it will then stop tring and flash red and green.

I have read every post in this thread and everyone says the same thing, I cannot put config magic on my PC hdd. Is there a way of formating the hdd to unlock it. By that i mean if i was to format it in a certain way would it unlock. Just for people with alot of money there is a program that unlocks drives to unlock ONLY 1 drive it costs $48 (£28) and 3 drives are $89 (£50) it is called A-FF repair station
