That's cable patches into 5Vdc and GND to power the modchip to install the modchip in a v1.6 Xbox.

What version is this Crystal Xbox?

I don't think the X-BIT 1.5's DVD/power cable is needed for non-v1.6 consoles.

The X-BIT's DVD/power cable is used on a v1.6 Xbox because the 5Vdc power at the LPC debug port of it is always.  Install in a v.16 required pogo pin 6 of the modchip is to be removed.  However, the modchip needs to be powered so they provided that cable for an easy to connect power source.

Error code 05 - HDD not locked.

You need to lock the HDD.  

Do you have the eeprom.bin backup for this xbox?

If not, you'll need an EEPROM reader and PonyProg or Raspberry Pi and PiPROM to read the 8-pin config EEPROM's content.  XboxHDM23USB Beta 2 to lock the Xbox's HDD when the drive is connected to a PC with a USB-to-IDE adapter and power.

There are additional methods to lock the HDD with a PC that has an IDE interface connector. XboxHDM23USB is just the easiest method for newer hardware without one.


Or, install a modchip!  It doesn't require the HDD to be locked like the stock BIOS.
