ok i have a regular xbox, and the hard drive went out on me error code 7.
so i bought a repalcement hard drive with evox and everything already installed and bought a matrx chip.
so i installed the matrix chip and installed it like the install pics showed.
and i installed the new hard drive, but now getting a error code
5.
i bought the matrix already flashed but no programmer came with it. well atleast the guy i got it from said it was flashed.
im pretty sure the matrix is in the right alignment because it get the green light.
iv used all the dip settings and nothing seems to work.
still getting eror code 5

so my question is what am i doing wrong? or is there something wrong with my chip?

the old hard drive was locked to the xbox motherboard...
when it crapped out and you replaced it, the xbox is trying to 'unlock' the new drive with the wrong 'keys' so in quite a pickle. what happened prior to the drive crappin out and givin error 7?
best thing i can think of is, (if you had a programmer, don't know how you'll do it without) is this.
Flash chip with evox.d.6 bios. this is the only bios that will skip a hard drive check(even a drive with errors) and boot straight from dvd. so if you had an evox boot disk with configmagic on it. you could boot it using the evox.d.6 bios. unlock the old crapped out hdd, then re-flash chip to bios of choice, and plop in new hard drive. (lock if you wish, only usefull if you use live) and you're done.
but like i said this would require the evox.d.6 bios, and without a programmer, you may be sol.
