    Hi there I attempted to change my dashboard on my V1.1 Xbox and ended up with an error 13.

    I later tried attempting refreshing my C and E drives using a hot swap method with no luck at all!! Then I unlocked my Seagate hard drive using the firmware for the drive, then I replaced all the old backup files and put the Hard Drive back onto my Xbox, which I then realised I needed a EPROM file from my original Xbox which unfortunately didn’t seemed to have save on my backup of the C and D drives. Now there is an Error code 5.

    My question is this, is there any way just to lock the hdd without the EPROM file or can I use this hdd again with installing a chip? I have just bought a Duox2 and waiting for it to be delivered. If I can use it before then that would be excellent.

    My Xbox is currently Softmodded with an UnleashX dashboard.

    Thanks for all your help!!

    You should have posted this in the xbox section but nm.

    Installing the Duox2 should fix ur problem as chipped xboxes dont need a locked drive
