  1. Just been thinking. Youve had it modded once (with old hdd). The mod you did updated the dash and kernel. This then updates the info on the machine as well i think. Then you went to mod a large HDD without complete success (hdd wouldnt lock). Now youve formatted the old HDD and trying to rebuild using your installer with your eeprom. The way i see it that eeprom is no longer valid for that motherboard as the onboard file has been changed from the original. I may be wrong but its an idea.


    Yes thats what I did to the T, But will the eeprom not let the xboxhdm program lock up the hard drives? Almost seems like the program is causing all my issues. atleast I did backup up all the original eeprom info to my PC. Im wondering is the Iso I made is bad, and thats why it's not letting me lock up any drive at all. What about cloning another soft modded xbox drive with my bad drive? Are there any other hard drive locking programs other than xboxhdm.

  2. Right, Thank you guys for all your help! I'm following all the steps in XboxHdm 1.9 to the T, and the part I keep getting stuck on is the (lock HD) area.

    No matter what I do it will not let me lock the hard drive. Just for shits-n-giggles I reformatted my stock 8GB xbox drive, and when I went to re-lock it, it would not let me. When I type in "LockHD -a" is give me "Aborted" checking HD status, and gives me some info about the drive. So I'm lost. I know my original xbox drive is lockable................Gosh I have a headace. I feel like im so close yet so far!!!!

  3. If you builded correctly from scratch the new hdd in XBOXHDM using the backup of the old hdd and then you lock it with the right password, it should work. Are you sure that you lock it using the right password ? The password depends not only by the EEPROM but also by the hdd serial number. This is the reason because Liveinfo doesnt need only the XBox EEPROM backup but also the new hdd connected to pc. I think you should try this sequence:

    -with liveinfo in the pc and the new hdd connected to the pc, you calculate the right password

    -with the cd generated by XBOXHDM you build from scratch the new hdd

    -with the cd generated by XBOXHDM you lock manually the hdd using the password generated by liveinfo


    Okay, So I run LiveInfo in windows right? Also I downloaded live info and unzipped it, But I see ne .EXE file. Can you direct me to a reliable download link?

  4. yes I wrote it down, I wrote everything down. When I reboot the drive and select option #3 in XBOXHDM 1.9, it shows the password. Is it possible I messed up in the making of the ISO image when I was backing up all the info? At lest I have my Eprom back up in like 3 different places.

  5. I remember I couldn't get anything to lock for my mates xbox before, so frusrated, I just stuck the HDD in the xbox after the locking claimed to have failed, and it worked and HAD locked the drive, so try that.



    Oh really< it wont harm anything if it didn't work? Guees ill try it. I let ya know.

  6. Yeah I made a backup of my current configuration. Here is what I did, or what I followed.


    1. copy eprom to eprom folder

    2. copy C to C (was nothing in my current bax's C drive)

    3. copy E to E (this had all my junk in it) 2 emulators and the current XBMC


    Did I do that wrong?

  7. I know what youve done. Simple mistake anyone could do it, ive done it a couple of times on different machines and i know what im doing with them tools. Im guessing your softmod has created a shadow C:\ drive using an unleashx engine as the dash. Yes ? Get the xbox to some sort of bootable state. Use a file browser (on the xbox) and browse to e:\.

    You should have a dash folder. Put the raw contents of the xbmc build in there. The shadow c:\ drive has a shortcut pointing to an xbe in the e:\dash folder. Try that, any problems post back and i will show you a proper admin trick for that setup if its needed.



    That did it, worked like a charm!! Question on upgrading my HD, I folled all the steps and made an Iso File, but when i goto write to CD it's bigger than the CD? 1134MB and all CD's that I can find are only 700MB Did I make my Iso image wrong
