SATA HDD in original xbox?

Can I put a larger SATA HDD in a original xbox using a SATA to IDE converter & is the SATA HDD Lockable?

P.S. the original HDD is in their and is soft-modded with evolution x. The console has no mod chip & I don’t need to use the original xbox dash either.

P.S.S. Do I have to lock the HDD if I’m not going to use the MS Dashboard?

This should go in our games consoles forum, so I’m moving your thread in there.

It seems highly unstable.
