If I were to buy just a motherboard (w/no hd) from ebay how would I go about using it? What would I have to do in order to use the motherboard with a hd?

I can't find out where to find out how to recover just the xbox motherboard.


muhaha.gif Me now.

Install a chip with a bios that allows HDD upgrades (any up to date appropriate bios), then install a HDD which is not locked, for example a 120GB WD drive, any drive really, then use an evox installer disc to format it and install all the software you want, and then lock it. Check the lockability chart in the general Hardware forum first though, its in one of the stickies.

You need a modchip and all that goes with it (bios, software, etc).

Thanks for the help.

So your saying install an already flashed modchip onto the new xbox mobo w/ matching hd and then add the hd and give it software to format and lock the hd?

Or are you saying to install a X3 modchip with that option that says lock hd or whatever on the flash bios page?
