well if the disk is locked it will give I/O errors.. the disk is locked so you cant read or write to it...
If the bios detects the drive 99% chance its just locked..
unlock the drive..
Also You STILL dont say what error the xbox gives when you have the hard disk installed.
also xboxhdm as a default does not nativly support sata drives..
its ide or bust.
Got it working (using a 750GB HD) but I'm still having some problems this is what I did, from start to finish:
Got an old PC with 1 IDE and 2 SATA. All see as /dev/hda-hdb. So there was no need for the converter at this time.
Using xhdm 2.2 usb I did this:
.activated stage 2 on xbox hd
.build xbox hd from scratch
. yes to populate C E and F
. started NDURE script. Backup C. Install Ndure files only.
. lock HD
Ok on the xbox it takes 10 to 15 seconds longer to boot this HD but it boots inside UnleashX.
Here's the problem when I ask it to reboot I get ERROR 07: HDD timeout. I tried using another cable but that gave me a lot of random errors.
I only have 2 ide cables at the moment for testing.
I'm not sure if my dead xbox drive is giving me this problems.
BTW: I was using the ndure script option to replace C with NDURE and when I started to copy files via FTP the F drive just disappeared. All the files were lost. Even formating using xbpartitioner 1.1.
I'm copying some files as I type this and so far (4GB+ copied) seems fine.
Is it normal to take that long to boot with larger HDs?
Is it a known bug the reboot + error 07?
