Post subject: Xbox hd help
Reply with quote
 
Hi everyone,

I am trying to put my old unmodded xbox hd into another xbox. at first i was getting error code number 6 meaning that my hd was not unlocking. I used xbox hd manager to unlock the hd then put it back into the other xbox. It gave me error code 5 this time meaning that my hd was not locked. I am assuming that this whole thing isnt working because xboxes dont let you take a hd from one and put into another. Does anyone know a way to do this if it is possible or offer some help with it. Also is there a way i can just buy one of the stock xbox hds and install that to see if itll work. If it helps at all i am almost positive that the other xbox is a version 1.1 just like mine but im not positive. Thanks for any help.

you unlocked your retail hd ? Shocked Shocked Shocked oh no then u just made a brick xbox.....

unless u grab a modchip ....... btw why would u want to swap hd to another motherboard???

and each and every diffrent motherboard is married to mostly every componet of the xbox except the dvd drive.....

u can make bigger hds for a softmoded xbox ... yep u dont need chip for that... but since u unlocked it theirs no way of locking a new hd.....

softmods need to be locked... how? eeprom.bin modchips dont...

In each xbox there is an eeprom which has a specific number code. The harddrives are locked to that eeprom, so the hdd becomes "married" to the box.
You need to back up the eeprom of the box you wish to put the hdd in and lock the hdd to the eeprom.
Read this tutorial.

I know the program that i used (XBOX HD manager 1.9) will let me relock the hd but is there a way to have the hd work on another xbox without using the eeprom. like is there a way that i could de activate that whole thing and make it run with another hd?

The only way to backup an eeprom from a box that has an unlocked hdd or no hdd at all would be with a modchip.
A hotswap still consists of unlocking a hdd that is married to an xbox. If a hdd is already unlocked, the xbox bios sees that and stops the attempt to unlock it, then you get a "5".

well i have a 250 gig softmodded hd in my xbox. I have another xbox that is my friend's. He is retarded and messed with the top seal of his hd, opened the whole thing up and must have gotten some dust inside it. The hd is corrupted and now the box wont work. I am just trying to replace his fucked up hd with my old 8 gig. I only wish to do this because my modded hd wont play certian games at all. but my old unmodded will play them fine. I dont really want to put any money into an xbox i dont own but i was just seeing if there was any software way that i could do this. Do you know any reason that my HD wouldnt play certian games such as counter strike and crimson skies? I have unleashX as my dash. Do you think that if i change my dash to something like XBMC or any other that these gaems would work fine?

Thanks for the replies though.

Update your softmod to SID 4.5 with the dual boot option. I couldn't play Top Spin on my softmod (SID3 with pbl) untill I upgraded to SID4 with the nkpatched dash.
