what happens is that when the X appears on the screen...it immediately goes to Error 12...
my computer that I'm using for the modding...has the PC hard drive on master...and cd on slave...on the primary IDE...
After the X shows on the screen...I try as fast as I can...to connect the IDE from the Xbox...or the computer...but there is like a split second...between the X and Error 12...
I have to have the CD drive...and Hard drive connected to the computer in order for the computer to boot from the CD...otherwise the computer beeps the error for not finding the hard drive...
am I doing this right?
the tutorial is confusing :s

thats what i do, wait for the screen to come up, put a 1 in myself then turn on xbox and swap harddrive.
Just a tip for new hard drive swapping people, I find it works best if you leave the DVD plugged in and use a power source from you comp, almost always works in 1 try. Also pull the xbox IDE cable from the HDD right after the sound is done playing when the BIG X comes up. If you can have the white MS word at the bottom when you pull the IDE you will have success..... well I have success that way.

A retail kernal cannot boot an unlocked HD. You will need a chip to boot the unlocked hd, then lock it using your eeprom. then remove the chip.

Edit*: If it's not much trouble, could you look at my reply in "Something Disappeared?" It'll be very much appreciated. Thanks.
