I have two boxes each sporting 250gb HDs. If those drives are LOCKED when a motherboard fails, will that drive be useless afterwards? Are there measures i can take beforehand that'll give me an alternative way to unlock the drive without having to physically remove the eeprom from the dead board (and risk ruining another board while trying to fix the eeprom to it)? Thanks

You could back up your HDD key and eeprom, like you should anyway, FTP them to your PC, and then use ConfigMagic(?) on your PC to unlock them.

Could you refresh my memory on how you are going to unlock a locked hdd on a different motherboard which it was locked on?



As stated before, backup your eeprom and key to the PC or if you like write down the key if you have modded with a chip like the X3 which will display the information.
