If the hard drive is brand new then it is already unlocked. Locking is a manual process, unless you do it, it won't be locked. A new disk will never come locked.

You only have to lock the hard disk if you want to turn your chip off, say for Live.

thanks i have one more question i'll be very thankful.please read this tutorial and tell me is it necessary to ran a xbox hdd prepare utility.please read the guide below.do ihave to make 6 partition in new hd using flashfxp tool and then place my new hd on my xbox.
5. Run the XboxHDPrepar utility
6. In the left hand window, select the drive that you intend to install in your Xbox

Note: Be VERY careful choosing the correct drive. If you select the wrong drive, you will almost certainly lose all system data on your computer.

7. Select the “Only 1st 4096 sectors of partitions” option in the “Zeroing” box
8. Click “Prepare” and let it do its magic!
9. Once the utility has finished, shut down your computer, remove the IDE cable and power cable from the HDD and take the HDD out of your computer case.
