Hello. I am new here and need some help with a problem of mine. I am attempting to fix a box for a friend and found out that his hdd is completely shot. I need to know how I can install a new drive while still using the same motherboard. From my research I have found that I need a mod chip, and the dashboard software. In all of this though, I have not found out how to replace a drive when the origional died and information cannot be taken off of it. All of the tutorials I have seen make you use the origional drive, which I can not. So please help me figure out what I need to do to get another drive in the box with the origional being shot. Thanks Alot!
