Okay, I'm trying to hotswap my xbox's hdd to my PC. It's completely in an unmodded state and I'm just asking, at what point is the HDD unlocked?(when should I unplug the IDE cable?)

It should answer any questions you have.

It is not necessary to hotswap anymore. just plug it into your pc and boot it with a xboxhdm cd. You will need your eeprom.bin file to unlock and relock the hdd once you are done. You can get the eeprom.bin file right off the motherboard, using a xbox eprom reader. I got my xbox eprom reader off ebay. It makes modding so much easier.
