u did unlock the harddrive before swapping it out right?
Which hard drive are you talking about? The maxtor is in the same state that it was pulled from so I really dont know if its locked or unlocked. But I do have the eeprom and a backup disc so thats no big deal. I never had the stock HD. I think that I am having a eeprom problem, but I dont know forsure. Everything worked 8 days ago when I pulled them from my other xbox to softmod it.
did you flash the mod chip
No, it worked in my other box so I didnt think I needed to reflash it. Would I need to, as it did work in the other xbox with out a problem.
I does fire up into the xbox start screen where the green Xbox shows up. Then sits there for a bit. After that it goes into the error screen. But it shows no numbers just that the xbox needs to be serviced.
