I'm sorry BladeRunnerUnit but we can only provide what we know should work. If the disk drive solution is no help than the next step is to start a repair order.
You can always PM one of the Mister or Miss's here on the forums by clicking the little green mail icon under their post as they are Official support and may be better able to assist. Or you can give support a call at 1-800-4MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269) if you do not want to wait on hold go here to use the "Chat with Support" or "Request a call from Support" options
If you are having issues with your console, please make a new thread here if you haven't already.
I hope this helps!
