A softmod should sort it out.

Softmod the new xbox to get a stock HDD backup which you can FTP over to your PC,

Softmod the old console and use the backup on your PCto rebuild the hard drive.

Of course, if you don't know what any of that means, your in the best place to learn.

PM me if you need to.

If you can boot games then you may be able to load the Krayzie softmod "save game" installer which will give you FTP access. It depends if the save game is still on the hard drive E: partition.

If the save game is gone but you can boot backup games (DVD-R) then you can boot using Slayers (or another boot disc) and reinstall the hard drive. You will have to re-softmod later.

If all you can do is boot original games, and you saved your hard drive key (EEPROM key) then you can use xboxhdm together with the files on the Slayer disc to make a bootable linux installation for your PC which will unlock, rebuild your XBOX hard drive and re-lock.

If you dont have the key then there is no easy way to rebuild the hard drive. You will either have to hot-swap or get a hard modchip.

Either, it is small enough to fit on a CD but your xbox may not read CD-R discs. If you are unsure, use a DVD-R.

Yes. You will need some intelligence when it comes to what option to choose on the Slayers menu, but its not rocket science.

The link I gave above has a link to a bittorrent version of the Slayers disc. When downloaded, unrar/zip and then burn to a DVD-R.

i do not have the epromm

Well you're stoopid then arnt you? Whenever you softmod they tell you OVER and OVER to back up your key! FTP it off your box to your PC for just this sort of emergency!

Did you even READ my post I DID give you links on how to to do this. You need to download the slayers disc, and download XBOXHDM and Ndure installer and follow the instructions on the link above.

To be honest I dont think you will be able to fix your box as you do not appear to be technically minded
