how long did you try to reboot for?

last resort you can open it up, unplug your DVD drive and the box will goto an error screen, unlocking the harddrive.

well i let it reboot for couple hrs.
if ma PC detects the xboxhdd after the hot swap does that mean its unlocked?cuz i get a no xbox found error when i run the hdd_driver and prolly still locked error with fatx. but it shows in device mang. and at startup in boot it showed like 9451mb or sumtin as the new"xbox" hdd<<<jus because i see it ;does it mean its unlocked. ive been tryin the hot swap after the MS text appears ; i never heard of the disable dvdrom option to unlock hdd.

let it reboot over night, you don't really wanna be hotswapping over and over again, fuckin around.

try the dvd rom thing, it's a much more reliable method, no screwin around.

and it doesn't mean anything when the PC detects it or not, doesn't really matter either way

Just unplug your DVD power cable, it will send you straight to the Screen of Death, which luckyly unlocks the HD. wink.gif
