you need to get the eeprom.bin from your original xbox hdd and create a boot disc with xboxhdm
then you can lock the new hdd with the eeprom from your old hdd.
the mobo has an eeprom on it and checks the hdd to make sure they are the same. if they are not, it will not unlock and wont work. if you get a chip, you dont need the eeprom for anything.
simplest way to solve your problem: install chip, flash the chip with a bios, format hdd with slayers, done.
how would i get the old eeprom.bin file if im getting the click of death from the old hard drive?
