    Install a modchip.

    Or if you have your EEPROM you can make a Linux based HDmaker for Xbox and lock it.

    There is a way to do it but you need your hdd key and a pc with an ide hdd connection. I haven't needed to do it in years so I forgot how to do it.

    If you don't have your EEPROM then you're basically fxcked.

    Only option is to install a Modchip (none are solderless iirc)
    The Duo X2 is the cheapest prolly for the job.

    This is exactly why I zero'd out the eeproms on both my Xboxes once I softmodded them, so I'll never have to worry about a lost eeprom key to lock/unlock the HDDs with.

    it was LONG ago, but i did this once on accident, ended up finding a Fat-X driver for windows xp and copying the eeprom backup i had made off the drive, then using some boot disc in my pc to lock it again.

    This might be a useless reply but, if you still have that driver.
    Mind sharing it, or uploading it to File trip?
