Okay cool. Don't worry about your locked disc, in fact I suggest you chuck it away - it's confusing matters.Irondrgntp wrote:Yes sir.

I do have and IDE cable/port and have been using it.
As you can see I have attempted to 'unlock/rebuild/re-lock'.... but instead of going through the entire process in time.. the Xbox shuts off soon before I can do all three. In this case, I suppose the power cycle messes up the entire process. Basically, I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to keep the box from timing out and shutting down *after all it's just sitting on the service error screen why wouldnt it time out*
AND THEN maybe it will properly unlock and lock after rebuild is complete...
PS: In the lock/unlock screen of XboxHDM it shows the security lock, hdd lock ... enable/disabled blahhhh etc..... WHAT exactly am I suppose to look for?
If you have your eeprom.bin file recovered from your motherboard, you can put that in the eeprom folder of XBOXHDM and use it to lock a new disc after you've built it. This will lock it to the motherboard from which the eeprom.bin file was recovered.
So the process is:
- Add eeprom.bin to your XBOXHDM, and build it into an iso (blow it to a CD/DVD or copy onto a USB stick)
- Attach new HDD to your PC.
- Boot the PC with XBOXHDM iso you just made
- choose the option to build new HDD (and watch it get built)
- reboot PC back into XBOXHDM and choose the option to lock the HDD
- switch off PC, remove HDD and put it back into XBOX
- switch on XBOX and enjoy fruit of labour.
