it turns out after stripping the xbox down to remove the nme v2, that it was never on the drive, looks like some cowboy had flashed the nme fw to the drive and fleeced the guy i bought the console from for the price of the chip and install
its all good now tho cos flashed LT and works like a charm
The guy likely did him a favor by not installing it. Flashing the firmware works better than the chip anyway.
But whoever was paid to install it should have told him that he would do him a better one and flash the drive and hand him back the chip so he could try to get his money back for it.
