    error 5 means your hd is unlocked...your hd must be locked to run the ms dashboard...lock your hd, and you should be good to go.

    If you don't know how to lock your hdd first here are different ways of locking your hdd:
    .Get into evox and edit the .ini to allow lock/unlock (can be found I beleive in the tutorial section of xbox-scene) if you can't get to evox-
    .If you have a modchip like Xenium or Smartxx then the os supports unlocking and locking of the hdd(i'm pretty sure) or you can go to xbox-scene and check in the tutorials section on how to burn xISO's so you can burn slayers and use the modchip, don't have a modchip
    .If you were smart you made a backup on your computer of the unique hdd key that is used to lock your hdd so you can pop the xbox hdd inside the computer and use that key (and hddunlock also found under tools xbox-scene) and lock it from there, didn't back your epprom or hddkey
    .You might now consider to buy a modchip and solderless adaptor, or wait till i'm awake to actually think of how to get out of this lol (I've done it before but I did backup my epprom although it was locked in my hdd lol)

    Any questions pm me or post,
