Ok, so I did the SC softmod and then UDE2 last week and everything was cool. After I modded, I ran the backup in UDE2, and got the password - which I wrote down. I also copied the backup to my pc.
SO last night I start working on a new HD. I was able to pull and unlock the orig xbox hd, then ran xboxhdm, did a clone, locked the new drive through xboxhdm, but did it manually where I type in the PW. Put the drive int he xbox- that didnt work, so I then did the xboxhdm build from scratch bit. For this process I reburned xboxhdm, with the epromm.bin. Somewhere in xboxhdm, I saw the password from epromm.bin, and it was nothing like the one I wrote down, and unlocked my original XBox HD with.
On the new drive, I get an error 6 upon booting.
Any thoughts? What am I missing here...?
