when using config magic it gives you a very clear warning that you can ruin your hard drive if improperly used...
the only thing i can think of is try getting an auto installer boot up disk like slayers 2.6 and see if the xbox will boot to it and try and unlock the drive or at the very worst reformat and install all your stuff from scratch...at this point you may have a paperweight on your hands....if so hopefully you will be able to rma the drive and replace it
sorry to hear this bud...but kids will be kids

existed)...unlocked the hdd...everything back to normal...
PS...I had only installed config magic a week ago.....didn't have a chance to change the ms dash from xboxxbe...so it was looking for the dashboard....i'm only assuming this was it?

for you to be able to run ms dash your hard drive needs to be locked...plus of course install an updated ms dash
