give me more detail of whats happening. is it just rebboting over and over? cuz if thats the case wait till the MS icon comes up when you start up the xbox and unplug. I know this workss cuz i got stuck with that problem and no games would boot either. ive also heard you can unplug the dvd drive and wait till error screen comes up to do a swap.

I'm guessing you're trying to do the hd swap trick. You have to have the xbox connected to the tv otherwise it won't detect a video signal and will cut off.

Doesnt need to be connected to the TV, just have the cord plugged into the back. Best way to unlock drive is to use a game, pause during game play, wait a few secs then swap
