I have successfully softmodded my XBox, and I am trying to upgrade the hard drive. I've been unsuccessful with that however, and I keep getting Error 06 after using xboxhdm and my XBox's eeprom.bin to try to lock it. This has been pretty frustrating, so I'm looking at getting a modchip (no solder, probably) so that I could use the new hard drive. My question though, is if I install a modchip, will I be able to use this new hard drive, even though it hasn't worked with the softmod? Or will I still have to get a new hard drive to try? From what I understand, using a modchip will basically allow you to use almost any IDE drive and format it in your XBox with an EvoX disc. Also, if anyone has any suggestions as to how I might make the hard drive work with the softmod, that would be great too! Thanks all.
