Error 09 usually points to a HDD fault. It's also possible the issue is with the DVD drive (which shares the same IDE cable), the cable itself, the motherboard, or the PSU.
Has this console ever been modified in any way? If so, how, and do you happen to have a backup of the system EEPROM?

X-Box HDDs need to have a special lock placed on them in order for the system to boot off them. There are two ways to go about installing a new one.
One is to install a modchip, after which the system should no longer care about drive locking. You will probably find this the easier route. You'll need to grab an installer/boot disc image, such as Auto Installer Deluxe (AID) or Slayers, to get up and running once the new drive is in place.
The other is to use an EEPROM reader to grab the data needed to lock a new drive correctly. You'll probably find this faster, assuming you've got a decent level of technical knowledge. You'll need to dig up a clean copy of the MS dash to install this way (this can also be found on most boot discs).
Not all HDDs are lockable, but the vast majority are. The new drive will need to be at least 8gb in capacity, but you can go much larger if you wish (the extra space can be used for installing games, music, ROMs, videos, etc).
