Can you swap boards from another Xbox if you messed up your current board?
I know it won't boot normally since it sees a different HD, but we were able to flash the chip (2.1Lite with OXZ Flash) and load the bios (X2 4977 colored).

But now we get error code "06" with the current HD, and error 16 with a new HD. We can't reflash it because it won't read from the DVD drive.

Any suggestions?

I'm guessing that the HD need to be unlocked BEFORE you move it over to the new mobo..
Then you can lock it (if you need to) once its working with the new (other) mobo.

As for how to unlock it, you well have to get that for a another user im a super noob

it can only be unlocked in a computer if you have the hdd key somewhere.if you locked the drive with configmagic there is a generic password "TEAMASSEMBLY" without the quotes of course

If I put an unlocked hd (from another modded Xbox) into my box with the new mobo, should that work?
