    Spoofing with a different brand is a good culprit but it could also be as simple as a different firmware revision used than stock ****ing the console off. You could flash back to stock and see if it works for you then reflash (but since you bought it, I assume you don't want to flash yourself) or you can contact the seller and get your money back (I recommend this).

    Also be aware that if this error was on there, there is a great chance the previous owner messed up and got flagged or banned and is now dumping this console off on you.

    I personally would manually flash the drive back to stock and then attempt again to mod the firmware. If this is something you want to embark on yourself, then I suggest before you do anything you read up on firmware flashing and the hardware involved. This site has many tuts or google will definitely have results for you. The good part is you have a early phat so the flashing process should not require anything much in the area of hardware. The easier solution would probably be to check ebay for another banned console (they are labeled banned on ebay to get away with selling flashed consoles) as they are relatively cheap on there.

    e66 incorrect drive for the console as stated you take it a part post what drives inside hopefully if youve got no proper flashing setup it may be a benq which can be flashed possibly with youre on board sata . .

    Since he says it is a early model without HDMI, I got a feeling its not BenQ or lite-on. But either way, to buy a replacement drive is about the same price as some of the banned consoles on ebay.

    Who ever sold it to you needs to revert back to stock then update the xbox or you can take it a part place a liteon or non modded drive. Update the xbox and place it back in. Only Liteon can update with out problems the rest you need to revert to stock before you update

    all you need to do is hook up the drive then get your key from the drive then go in to manually spoof the drive then set it to what the drive says on the label then it will accept the console update
