ok, i bought an xbox from some pawn shop. he says he couldnt get it to work. so i think, "cool maybe something simple" so i bought it for $25. has a philips in it and the hdd has the sticker peeled off. the xbox has been opened before i had it.
when i turn it on, the splash screen comes on and it freezes at the xbox logo, and about 20 seconds later, i get the error screen(07).
i made a slayers disc, and its not booting. ive checked all jumpers and cables. i know the dvd drive works, because i tried it in my other xbox.one thing i did notice is the MS logo never comes up, so im thinking maybe the bios?
anyway, my queston is, if i were to buy a hdd, would i be able to put it in without an eeprom or hdd key? and also, if the stock bios is messed up, will i be able to get this working at all?
ive been searching for over an hour on this and couldnt find any answers. Thanks
