that's news to me...where's that documented?
personally, i tried this out on a Core2 Duo & AMD chips - with no issues at all.
IIRC i also tested the CD-kicker method on an old Pentium system which worked fine too.
Why not test it out & report your efforts here.
The original xboxhdm would not lock HDDs in Pentium 3/4 machines due to the IDE controllers freezing the drive. No matter what you select in the bios (I go one option at a time, till all controllers are turned completely off) it's going to give you the "Hard Drive Frozen". Like I said earlier, I tested 3 separate P4s, and one P3 and all gave the same output. Your release is no different on these machines. I've tested it in a virtual environment using VMWare Workstation and live with the same results. I'm also not sure what the "CD-kicker" method is. Are you talking about just using a live cd?
The only time I was able to work it was on an AMD Athlon XP and an old Pentium II board. I've accomplished my HDD swap using your tool to transfer the files and a thankfully partially usable old HDD, booting into Chimp and locking it right there (using a 1.0 box)
