Initially I couldn't get the xbox hdd to unlock, trying everything. Including unplugging the dvd drive to get an error 12. I still continued to get the message "No xbox-partition table found on dev/hda".
Now when I put the xbox back to it's defaults I get an error 13.
I'm stuck and don't know what to do to proceed?
EDIT1: I don't quite understand why it's missing/bad key, I'm thinking during the Hotswap (which I performed over 30 times) I may have accidentally corrupted the drive.
EDIT2: I removed the dvd drive cable and get an error 9, but on xboxhdm it says "The following drive was found on your primary master: STs1p0q4A" Then goes onto say the "Xbox drive is locked!"
EDIT3: I then proceeded to try and unlock the drive using alternative methods, xboxhdm has option 3 to lock/unlock drive. Then type "unlockhd -a" to automatically get the password from Eeprom but then get the eeprom.bin not found on cdrom and what now concerns me is I didn't get an opportunity to backup the eeprom from the hdd and I may be stuck forever.
Some additional errors I noticed
( DriveReady SeekComplete error )
IQR probe failed
EDIT4: I was reading somewhere about "Auto-Installer Deluxe v4.52" is it advisable to take this route or do any of you have better ideas. Thanks!
