Ok, lets start with a intro, Im dyingdemon, i softmodded my first xbox only 2 weeks ago via hotswapping, xboxhdm and ndure. It worked perfectly, been using it fine, but decided its time to upgrade
Fastfoward to now. Pulled my old 200gb wd out of my old computer, and decided to make it my new hdd. Promblems
I have my eeprom.bin file. I decided to use my xboxhdm to set up a new hdd it went flaweless with my c and e, and even my F partions, i thought i was in the clear. NOPE i was wrong. event thought i have my eeprom.bin file in the eeprom folder, it says it doesnt exist (got eeprom with config magic) so i though i would just enter pass by hand. I tried that but then it ends up saying drive is frozen, cant do it. my Bios doesnt have the function of turnning off auto detect so i cant follow those instructions. I have even tried redoing the entire process on another computer, but end up with same results.
the hdd is a wd2000bb WD Caviar Enhanced IDE HD, according to this site it is lockable. Is there any way i can just boot up dos and lock it, or something that. i know someone is gonna say "USE THE USB DRIVE METHOD" ill beat you too it and say no usb drive, stick or anything else outside of a keyboard and mosue.
i know my hdd pass, unique keys, everything from the configmagic backup
