I have been stumbling through these forums over the last 48 hours to figure out how to use the hotswap exploit to softmod my original xbox (with stock hdd), after a very late night last night (and lots of rough handling of IDE cables) I was very proud to have succesfully completed that task using ndure 3.0 and xplorer360 to install the evox dash.
Despite seeing posts warning against this, I loaded an old slayers auto installer disc (2.7) into the console and proceeded to unlock the hdd so I could drag and drop roms and utilities onto the harddrive (in hindsight It would have been better to FTP!!)
Now I am unable to boot to the dashboard with my error 05, having read through various threads on this site and others I have tried to reformat or lock the drive with xboxHDM (which doesn't seem to recognise the drive - no disk drive found on /dev/hda (primary master)!
After accidentally formatting my windows HDD using xboxhdm, I am seeking your help, I am still very willing to restore this xbox to working condition
Edit: I will keep looking through threads from people with similar problems
Edit: I have tried disabling IDE auto detect (intel P35 chipset)
Edit: I have tried setting jumper cable to master
Please let me know if theres more information that I can provide, I am really struggling
