I was trying to follow this tutorial (please have a look if you can):
I did everything correctly, followed the tuto until the "play the track and pause it". I did copy a music track to the HD and played it. When I paused and did the hotswap, I realized that my computer woudn't boot. It booted, I got the xboxhdm screen and when I pressed "1", it just rebooted. I tried many times and the same error occurred.
So I've given up trying to boot and hooked the HDD back to the XBOX - the console was still running. Then I accidentally pressed the controller button and the track played again, making the console crash.
Since then, my XBOX gets an error 7.
I don't know what happened, I don't understand well how the whole thing works. I am an advanced Windows user and a very good Linux user (I use Debian as my primary Operating System and Windows just for gaming on Virtual Machine). I am also very good with hardware but this "unlock and lock HDD" is very new to me and I never heard of it before.
I did try to set the HDD's jumpers to master, slave and CS and hook it to my PC but it's not recognized in the BIOS. When I skip the HDD detection and load Linux or Windows, none of them see the disk - and don't mount it, of course.
I forgot to mention that I don't have any backups.
I read a lot before starting the tuto but I didn't understand what is this bloody eeprom and I have no idea what to do now.
Any ideas? I can answer any questions you have. I'm pretty desperate and your help would be great.
