I think I was having overheating issues with my xbox, so I have got a broken xbox from a friend for the motherboard: It was only the dvd drive that broke on his, but he took out the hd to give to a friend to use in his PC. So basically I have a replacement motherboard, but nothing else.
I thought it was going to be simple to just change the motherboard as I didn't know about HD locking. I put it in and I get error code 06 on booting. Which I've learned means the hard drive is locked with the wrong code.
I've been trying to follow this guide http://www.xbox-scene.com/articles/no-modchip-hdd-swap.php but it's hard for me to follow and the only tools I could find "in the usual places" are liveinfo, xhdprepa, hddunlock and hdd_driver.
I'm finding it hard to follow that above guide because it's not quite the same as the job I'm doing (replacing a motherboard in a unmodded, but can softmod box). Does it make it any easier if I softmod it with the old motherboard?
Can anyone help me with this?
