i mentioned this problem in another thread but never got it fixed....
i put the files from my softmodded C onto a dvd using xboxhdm and followed the tutorial that was recently posted (not yours kingroach (yet))... i was using a 100 gb harddrive (keep in mind my xbox dvd drive doesnt work) i got it locked, tested, error 16... went back to the original hdd, booted fine softmodded... the harddrive was a seagate, and i remember seeing someone saying u have to remove a DDO in seagates...
either way i unlocked the hdd and tryed a 40gb with the same disk... it locked and when i put it in it boots to error 6... so i went to unlock it, and it wont unlock now, but oh well
i reformatted the seagate and went through the diskwizard and there were no DDO options
i also read xboxhdm messes up softmod exploits... not sure how accurate that is
Right now i have a working dvd drive from a friends xbox in mine (not sure if that will be a factor or not)...
but should i just grab kingroaches installer and manually put the files on the harddrive through xbrowser, then lock it with xboxhdm?
(after the WD not being able to unlock (i tryed numurous times) im not sure how well i trust it at all....)
btw i am saying this halfway through reading kingroaches thread
