Yes the new one, you need the eeprom.bin from that xbox

after i unlock it, can i keep it unlocked? whats the point of locking it in the first place?

Yes the HD will say unlocked once you locked it and you will need to lock it again with the new xboxs eeprom.bin to even be able to use that HD on that xbox

The reason the HD gets locked is only so the xbox can open it when it boots up, when it boots up the HD unlocks it self reads the files it needs to load up the dash that you see every time Smiley

1. softmod the stock hd from the box, then copy the eeprom from that hd to the new one?

2. can i do this with a low end comp (or do i need one?)

3. since i never actually softmodded an xbox before, could you tell me of anywhere i can get good, clear, precise instructions on soft modding and switching hd?

1. Ok if you going to softmod the used xbox first ok, then pull the eeprom off that ok
then your going to get the eeprom off the old xbox so you can unlock the HD and then use the eeprom of the used xbox to lock the HD and allowing you to use that HD in the USeD xbox

2. Yes as long as you have IDE cables and a cd drive in it

OK i got to Step in LOL   


for the messed up HDD try doing a Hotswap to Get the eeprom.bin file
http://www.smdepot.net/forum/index.php?topic=883.0

I know it Says For fixing error13-21 BUT thats a Hotswap  so you can Look around in the HDD and find the eeprom  If Not look for a Key.txt  that way will be Harder BUT if done 100% right will work Just remeber if you use the Key.txt wright down the Key And check it OVER AND OVER  till you Know you got it Right =)

you Can use a master Pasword to unlock a HDD But if the Xbox Was just Softmod and did not use a locking Program then there is no Set master Pass (this does not work 100%)

This is for A how to on Makeing a NEW HDD
http://smdepot.net/forum/index.php?topic=201.0

Think of the eeprom as a Key  without that Key the Xbox just can't work and don't think of it as a File More like Set within the Xbox MB it's Self  the eeprom.bin is Made buy evox  All evox does is right Down the Keys Numbers Onto a file witch you can use to Lock and Unlock the HDD
