    I have an XBOX that does not have a working hard drive in it. XBOX does NOT have any kind of mod on it! I build an eeprom reader and got the eeprom.bin out of it. Now, what do I have to do next to make it work again? Please, help. Thank you all for your help!

    you need xboxhdm1.9 and the m$ dash files. read all the tuts
    to find out where to get them. xboxhdm makes a linux live disk
    which with your eeprom.bin and a dash can build a harddrive
    for your xbox. xboxhdm has instructions with it. Chunkheads
    tuts are very useful and helpful to............hark at me, im
    a newbie to! im doing my first tomorrow.

    do read all you can on here there are other utils that will assist you on the way and the tuts are great.

    regards

    The "How do I upgrade or rebuild my HDD?" one is the one you want. As long as you have the eeprom file you should be good.

    also in your case you use your pc to run the live disk
    with your new HDD plugged in as well, the HDD goes back into the Xbox once your done, read read and read again the tuts are great.
