    Xbox swap question

    My xbox Mobo seems to be toast. I can't fix it. So if I go and buy a new Xbox, swap the motherboards and put em back together and return it saying it doesn't work, can i boot it up? I know theres something to do with the HD password so does it require the original motherboard? Will this work? Can someone let me know if this works? If so i'm going after work to pick another one up and get my refund 20 min later

    isnt the hard drive password locked into some chip on the board m8, if so how would you get around this, youd have to swap the hard drive aswell or were you gonna do that anyway

    unless im totally wrong like, i think i member reading summit bout the password being on a chip

    couldnt you just delete it all with evolution-x, then restore the original default.xbe from the original c:/ drive from the xbox

    Couldn't u just put the old x-box in the new x-box's box and take it back? Would solve the problem
