I've got an xbox whose motherboard has apparently died. No power even after replacing power board. I'd like to be able to use hard drive but have no way of unlocking it that I now of. I have an eeprom reader but the unit has to power on for me to read it. Can I unlock the drive without this file?
I have a second drive, 40gb, that I was using to build from scratch. It never worked and the other day I was going to try and use it again, but xboxhdm says the drive is locked and I couldn't create the image. I tried to mod it a while back when I first started doing this and probably didn't know what I was doing. Again, I don't have the eeprom file that went with the lock code. Is there a way to unlock this drive to be able to use in another xbox? Since it was created with xboxhdm can I just use one of the generic passwords like TEAMASSEMBLY to unlock it?

There's no way to do it without the eeprom fro the motherboard. You're SOL on that one. _________________ Xbox Original

TEAMASSEMBLY or XBOXSCENE would be the possible master passwords. If that doesn't work, try the following:
Power down your computer and disconnect all devices except for the mouse, keyboard, monitor and the hard drive that you are trying to unlock. Make note of whether your hard drive is plugged into the Primary or Secondary IDE channel.
Now boot your computer with with your usb drive and run the following command:
zu /p (for primary)
zu /s (for secondary)
In a matter of seconds you should see that your hard drive is unlocked.
