I assume you softmodded your original harddisk before you started with the 500 gig one.
Some softmods like the Ndure create a shadow eeprom. Some applications read that shadow instead of the real xbox eeprom.
So, you might start by giving a bit more usefull information.
- What type is your xbox?
- Did you use configmagic in a way that it might have messed up your eeprom contents?
Since your original harddisk is still booting, I don't think there is something wrong with your xbox eeprom contents. That disk wouldn't boot either if your eeprom contents are corrupt.
Unlock the 500 gig harddisk before you start further experimenting. When the xbox gives you a error 5 with it, the disk is unlocked.
Make sure you have the configmagic 3 program if you have a 1.6 or 1.6b xbox.
I have a version 1.1 xbox acording to the evox setting menu. I have the ConfigMagic 1.6 final by Yoshihiro. All i did with that program is read the eeprom which obviously isn't a correct eeprom. I was thinking that if my eeprom is screwed up then the original hdd wouldn't boot so thanx for clearing that up becasue i was going to post that. I got the eeprom from backing it up in the evox dash and taking it off of the backup folder on the E partition. It obviously wasn't the right one. So can anyone tell me how to get my real eeprom since you think it's a shadow. I know some xbox stuff but this is the first time doing stuff with the hdd or eeprom so i apreciate your help.
