I needed my 320GB Seagate HDD back, and managed to unlock it. It is now my Wii external USB drive (including entire E & F drive backup from XBOX). That took a long time to FTP over :-)
I have the original 10GB (12?) Hard Drive that was in the XBOX originally, and I DO have an unlock password for this drive, as it was my original TESTBED for soft-modding. There should also be an EEPROM backup on the drive somewhere (created by EvoX dash).
Now the 320GB drive is gone (I still have the eeprom & password for that), but locking and reinstalling the 10GB drive did not work (Errors 5 and 7 mainly). As I now have no way of recovering the KERNEL/DASH versions, I am in a real pickle. I cannot set up nDure 3.1 without this information handy?!?!
I know at some point I need to do a hot-swap to return this drive to it's former glory.
Can anyone help me out with some info on what I need to do?
What software would I need to mount this drive on the PC, and copy the old EEPROM (assuming I even need it?). The original EEPROM should be able to unlock/lock the disk, so just a quick few steps, and I should get it from there. If the EEPROM never changes, then I have it, but screwed the hot-swap.
Many thanks for any help you can give me. I used to be real good at this years ago, when I did this soft-mod, but I have lost the original eeprom backup (only have the one off the new 320GB drive). I have also lost the kernel/dash versions (which I did have written down).
REMEMBER: I'm a newb, and this 10GB drive is already softmodded with nDure (master p*ssword XB*XSCENE), and should fire up without issue, ONCE I REINSTALL IT...!
Any help or suggestions gratefully appreciated!
