Cannot Unlock Slave Hdd Using Chimp


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I came across this site while searching for solutions to my problem. I was attempting to upgrade my XBOX HDD to a 1 TB WD SATA drive that is listed as lockable. I followed Mr. Mario's tutorial on Youtube to a T, and it appeared to be successful, however upon powering up with the new HDD in place of the old I get error 07 and on occasion 09. When going back and attempting to use Chimp to re-clone the original HDD to the new drive, the new drive cannot be altered due to it being locked. Attempts to unlock the HDD via the Unlock Slave Drive menu in Chimp do not work, all of which lead to the same screen referencing the password from the motherboard, but changing nothing. How do I unlock this drive?

And yes, I have the jumpers currently set to slave, and had them set to master when I attempted to utilize it as the master HDD.

Any help is appreciated.

Service Error 07:
Info: Hard Disk timeout.
Solution: Check the IDE Connection/Cable and check the Power Supply.

 

Service Error 09:
Info: Hard Disk parameters (PIO/DMA/or size). Certain minimum size is required for a debug BIOS. According to llamma.com, error code 09 means "Xbox motherboard is having trouble communicating with the Hard Drive...this is probably due to an ATA controller on the motherboard and not due to the hard drive itself.

 

Are you using a 80 way IDE cable and what type of SATA to IDE adaptor.

 

Cheers

Is your Xbox a soft or hard mod? Have you remember to set the new hdd to master after cloning?

He confirmed that he had done that earlier.

There's something more going on here; if Chimp locked the HDD on that Xbox as slave (or master) it should be capable of being unlocked too.

The fact the 1TB HDD did not work as master and now can't be unlocked suggests either a connection or hardware problem. I'd check the 80 wire IDE cable is connected properly at all three points (HDD, DVD Drive, MB) as other have suggested. If that does not help then the best bet is trouble caused by the SATA/IDE adapter.

Unfortunately the only way to test that is try a new one and whilst you're at it a different 80 wire IDE cable too. If neither replacement helps then, even worse, the new HDD becomes the chief suspect. You could actually test that first if you have a spare HDD available and at least save the cost of buying a new SATA/IDE adapter.

I bought a pair of 80 wire IDE cables a few months ago and one of them works perfectly but when used the other had intermittent problems often reporting  errors 7 and 9 at boot. Connections all good and no obvious damage so initially I thought a HDD or SATA/IDE adapter fault too but it was the IDE cable causing the trouble.

I've had to dump it because of that.

Use Xboxhdm to check the new drive using eeprom/hdd key and check the c and e partition have been setup correctly or just unlock and try again.

I have tried a separate 80 wire IDE cable and 2 separate SATA/IDE adaptors, to no avail. When I attempt to unlock the drive via Chimp I get the same result no matter which option I choose, "hdtool: illegal option --d".

Is there a way to unlock this drive via PC to try again? I can't seem to get my pc to recognize the drive.

Yes using Xboxhdm providing you have your hdd key, which you should have as you are doing an upgrade.

Winwoes cannot display the contents of a FatX format hard drive or Xbox DVD disk.

Have you tried using FATXplorer on your PC to look at the drive?

When your Xbox is giving error 7, 9 that means it can not see the contents on the drive and I have had that error before and it was a bad 12 volt supply (yellow wire) to the hard drive.

If it was a locking issue the you would have error 5 or 6 on your Xbox.

      I have an OpenXenium chip installed in my 1.6 box w/ 2TB Sata HDD;  StarTech adapter; Chimeric custom 80 ide cable. 
      I just finished installing the Xenium RGB mod by Nemesis.  So I downloaded all of the Xenium OS LED and Skin files.  Uploaded them to their own subdirs in a subdir named XeniumOS on E:\
      so:
      E:\XeniumOS\Skins
      -and-
      E:\XeniumOS\LEDS
      when I select Choose LEDs... the only thing that shows up is <Default>, not the list of leds.  I thought that was weird so I made sure E:\XeniumOS dir existed w/ sub dir LEDS, yep it does.  Still stumped I thought well maybe the chip isn't reading from the HDD for some reason...so I opened Disk Tools from the OS menu and selected Format Partition and choose the Z partition.  Selected Master selected Yes all the way through til I was REALLY sure....it said "Failed to format partition!"  Did the same for Slave.  So I confirmed it's not reading from the HDD...then I thought well i should FTP in and see if I can see the list of directories, they aren't there. 
      I put my orig 8GB IDE HDD in w/ orig IDE cable and tried the same thing....it shows the LED files and Skin files.  I'm stumped trying to figure this out.  I've made sure the blue end of the IDE cable is connected to the HDD.  Tried ALL of the jumper locations on the StarTech adapter; Master, Slave, CS and the other one.  I have no idea, I gave up for the evening.  
      FWIW, XBMC loads fine and I can see all of my files in the dash and FTP, games and apps load fine from the HDD...so It's a Xenium OS issue;  it's probably related to another issue but I'm not sure what it is so I made this post asking for help.
      Can anyone offer a suggestion on how to get read access to my sata HDD in the Xenium OS?
      TIA!

      Hey guys, happy new year!
      A few months ago I was given an original Crystal Xbox. As someone who has always been on the Sony side of consoles, I admit, I don't know much about Xbox. However I was told that the Xbox was running EvoX (Can be confirmed, when I turn the Xbox on, there is an EvoX icon on the left hand side of the boot screen) and that the Xbox had a modchip inside.
      The Xbox has been sitting under my bed for a while and I thought today I would dust it out and upgrade the internal HDD. The IDE hard drive inside the Xbox was only 80GB and I had a spare 250GB IDE hard drive I wasn't using. --
      So I went ahead and followed this tutorial: 
       
      Basically I downloaded Hexen 2018 > burned the image to a DVD > put the DVD inside my Xbox > replaced the old IDE HDD with the 250GB one > booted into Hexen 2018 > went into Disk Upgrades > From there I followed the process. 
      After the files had copied over from the DVD, XBPartitioner 1.3 booted up and I made sure that I set the F drive to the full 250GB.
      From there the process was complete. I took the Hexen 2018 DVD out of my Xbox and the UnleashX dashboard popped up. BUT when I look at the drive details on the upper left corner. I can see that there is only around 120gb free on (F:).
      Whenever I try to boot XBPartitioner from the dashboard menu, I get the following error:
      "LBA48 info not found! Custom Partitions will not work with this BIOS! Update your BIOS to one which supports at least LBA48 version 2."
      I done a bit of research and it LOOKS like I need to update my BIOS. But honestly as someone who has no clue what they're doing, this frightens the hell out of me. So that leads me to this post... I'm looking for some help which can preferably be explained in as simple detail as possible, I literally need someone to spoon feed me the steps. I would be so grateful and appreciate it!
      EXTRA INFORMATION - If I load into the EvolutionX dashboard I can see the follow details, which might be relevant.
      BIOS: EvoX M8 (1.6) Kernal: 1.00.5838.01 EvolutionX V+3935

      Hi everyone. Recently I've been watching some ModernVintageGamer videos on YouTube and really wanted to get out of the drawer my old modchipped Xbox. It wasn t booting anymore because of a dvd reader failure(error 11 and 12) so I got a used xbox for spare parts off eBay,got the dvd player out of it and put it in my Xbox. The Xbox boots but it won't read even original disks. My question is how do I understand what modchip is installed? Can I run any sort of homebrew via USB and upgrade my HDD ? Thanks in advance.
