Xboxhdm Trouble Locking "most Lockable" Hd.
Posted 05 March 2012 - 02:08 AM
I'm working with a soft-modded xbox. FTP'ed to get my eeprom, which I opened using Liveinfo, to verify the serial number of my console.
Copied both E and C drives and eeprom into xboxhdm folders, and created the linux.iso. Followed tutorial very closely. Everything went smoothly until trying to lock it, where it gives the "error this drive does not support ata security"...
Tried going through things multiple times, followed troubleshooting tips, no success.
Only thing I can think of is that it's the PC's fault I'm using (Dell 8200).
Anyone have any guesses about what I'm doing wrong, or do you agree that it's most likely PC-related problem?
If not, anyone have any experience working with this hard drive model that I could mail you to do the xboxhdm process and lock?

Use HeXEn (Google Heimdall's Xbox Engineering Disc) to build the new disk in your Xbox instead of your PC.
Thanks for the response Heimdall.
So I'm downloading your HeXEn engineering disk right now. I assume I just burn to a DVD-R and pop into my xbox right? Could you give me like a "step 1,2,3" to do after that, because the description of HeXEn is a bit overwhelming.
Also, I won't need the PC at all for this process, correct?

You need something to power the second disk, and you might want to use your PC for that, but apart from that you don't need your PC.
HeXEn has instructions on-screen.

I removed my hard drive from my PC since it wasn't locking correctly after running xboxhdm. Do I need to format it before I use your method Heimdall, or will Hexen format it for me?
And if so, how do I format it? I have a USB/IDE converter arrive shortly in the mail, also an external power source for my HDD (that's why I haven't done your method yet).

You can use your PC to power the disk.

At the end, I got a menu where you have to lock the drive, and then back up eeprom, which i did. after that it said to remove Hexen dvd, then turn xbox off and back on, which I did. But I get an error 5 when the xbox comes back on.
I did leave external power on to the new hdd, is that the problem?

The hdd has to lose power/reset for the ATA security lock to sink in. Alternatively the hdd really doesn't support ATA security.
I'm now pretty sure the drive just wasn't lockable because of the firmware. But I have a new drive coming in tomorrow.
During the creation process using Hexen/lxhdm, does the new hard drive need to be in master or cable select mode? I haven't really found an answer to that yet.
Also, when should I cut the external power to the new hdd? like at which step I mean.

Select both menu options, in order.
1. Lock disk
2. Backup eeprom
Now remove the HeXEn DVD
and turn your Xbox off
then back on again.
Maybe I should have been more explicit about removing the power from the second drive at this point as well. I assumed it was fairly obvious.....

And at this point since no one seems to answer it that it doesn't matter if the hard drive is set to master or cable select positions. I'll set it on master and see if it works, since the pc xhdm creator had to have it set on master.
Thanks for being patient with me guys.
