ANOTHER STUPID QUESTION FROM ME...HIHIHI

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE HDD WHEN YOU DISABLE THE MOD.
ISN'T THE ORIGINAL BIOS SUPPOSED ONLY TO RECONGNIZE THE ORIGINAL HDD?
SCENARIO...I HAVE INSTALLED PC-BIOXX AND AN 80GIG HDD...
ALL MY GAMES ARE ON THE HDD...
I WANT TO PLAY XBOX LIVE SO I DISABLE MY MOD...
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE HARD DRIVE?

THANKS GUYS....
STUPID CANADIAN

Yeh you need that REAL beer to get you drunk enough to get in bed with those women up there ehhh?

Anyway if you disable the mod, a little man with a stick will come out of the DVD drive and whack you in the ballz repeatedly until you submit to a rectal exam with a pineapple! ohmy.gif

You can diable your mod, but you will not be able to access the files on the F:\ drive since the partition is not supported by the original bios. You can still play your originals and such off a disc, but no "backups" will be able to play, nor will you be able to play any of the games off the HDD.

Basically it will revert to the original Xbox with all the standard features.

I would just like to point out that here, In Montreal we dont have to get drunk to get girls cause they already to that very well, and they are very beautiful. Cant say the same shit about Ontario. Their bars close at 2 am ewww.

and P.S. Molson comes from Quebec and we pee in the bottles heading to the rest of the Canada. Now you know what we call Quebec's fine touch....

My guess is that since you first created an image of the original xbox HD and transferred it to the bigger HD, after disabling the mod, the xbox sees no difference between the old xbox HD and the new one because all the partitions and data it sees match ( be sure to have the original xboxdash.xbe and not the evoxdash renamed to it)

i was wondering the same thing. i have the same scenario. pc-bioxx with a 80 GB HD. i didnt install the chip yet so i cant test it out. i figured it just would not utilize the extra space on f: but in some threads people are telling me i have to swap the drive. i will have my mod chip installed in a week or 2 and i kinda wanna know first.

I guess everyone is forgetting here, that when you disable the mod, the original bios will not be able to unlock the new hard drive and will report an error.

Of course even if this worked, Evol-X would not run.

What I wanna know is, the new HDLock proceedure is supposed to LOCK DOWN a new drive to be compatible with the original BIOS.

Ok fine, but isn't the unlock code for the drive burned into the eeprom. As a result disabling the mod, even with a locked drive, will still cause it to fail.

The way I understand it, is that the unlock code from the origional HD/Bios is retreived. Then, using the same code, the "new" drive is locked. Any drive supporting locking can be set with whatever code you want. MS just used certain variables to establish the origional code.

I could be wrong though...
