I recently am trying to fix my hdd that came with my xbox. Somehow it got unplugged when it was being used and screwed up all the partitions. When I was trying to format the partitions, I got this error.

Write 0x2A failed !
Format Failed !

Any help would be great.

Had the same problem some time ago. Just reflash the original *.bin then take a formatting tool of your choice and, important, format the whole drive as free space. Then fire up hddhackr and create and format the 3 partitions.

edit: nvm just saw that the pdf tells you the same but more detailed.
