Hopefully someone can help me here. I have just upgraded the drive in my softmodded xbox with very few problems following the tutorials on here (many thanks!) and Iím putting it to good use, however I made a slight mistake by not unlocking the old drive before taking it out so I was wondering if thereís a way to unlock it without having to take the xbox apart again to put the drive in there to do it? I have tried using xboxhdm to unlock it as I have the eeprom but it tells me no disk is attached on Primary IDE (Iím guessing that its because its locked?) So does anyone have any other solutions or am I going to dismantle everything again??

Sorry didn't explain it too well. The drive that was in it originally was a 60GB one and I want to use it in another xbox mod so I need to get it unlocked before I can rebuild it for the other xbox, I was just wondering if there was an easy way to unlock it without having to put it back in the original xbox and use evox or something similar.

Lol maybe you should, although probably I'm just not explaining it right!! But yeah you've got it, its soft modded and I want to put it in another xbox and as far as i can understand I need to unlock it before I can use it in my pc with xboxhdm and create it for another xbox?
I have the original disk I used to creat the drive with the eeprom on and thought I could just unlock it using unlockhd -a but sor some reason it tells me that no primary master drive was found. The jumpers are all correct so what could be the problem?

ok umm ur going to need the eeprom.bin from the new xbox where you want this drive to boot from . since each xbox is married to its mobo thats why we need the eeprom.bin

this is what i think your going to have to do ....

ftp everything on your upgrade hd , then transfer those files to xboxhdm1.9 now here is the key point YOU DONT USE the current eeprom on this xbox you gotta get the eeprom where you want the hd to run from... so for say this is xbox 1 a and you want it to xbox 1 b you need xbox 1 b eeprom so you wont run into error code 06 .

once you got the eeprom.bin burn the iso and and re make this hd with this new iso ...

im doing this the long way because i belive if you unlock a hd from a softmoed xbox it wont work again...

so i made it longer but safest way possible . as for the no hd detected make sure the new hd is as master on the jumper setting and the cd drive as slave.

Thanks for all the info, and it was your last line that was the solution!! I had the drive set as master on primary ide but I had the cd rom on its own ide channel so it was timing out and not recognising the drive on the primary. Now I've got them both running on the same ide cable xboxhdm 1.9 can find the drive to load the new iso with the new eeprom!!
Thanks again for your patience and help!! Very Happy
