Here is what I found for error code e79:
E79: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it.
According to tmbinc: E79 is the error code if xam.xex could not be started, i.e. probably a file system corruption.
You might want to get in touch with microsoft and see what they suggest to fix this problem.Here is a link to their support site:

Error code E79 on an Xbox 360 means you may have a faulty hard drive. This may be due to the hard drive not being connected correctly and can be fixed in a few steps. If, after following troubleshooting steps, the error does not resolve itself, you may need to purchase a new xbox 360 hard disk.

My xbox got one ring with error code E79 or E71


Well, E79 and E71 are different things.

The E79 is an error code representing a Hard Drive error. It could be the HDD itself or its a connection problem with the hard drive. Try playing your 360 without it and see what happens.

E71: possibly a dashboard update error, there is no solution at present the console must be sent back to MS for repair. Try resetting your console, or Power Off, remove the HDD if you have it. Reconnect the HDD.

E79: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it. If it works with the hard drive removed then you may have a faulty hard drive m8. To test your machine before you buy another one, borrow a mates hard drive and test it in your machine, if you get the error code again then something in your machine is faulty. If it loads ok with a different hard drive then yours is definately the problem. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

Xbox 360. got an error message E79 and 4 red lights. Now it freezes up at reume game. What do I do.


All four lights means there is a problem with the av cables, check to make sure they are in all the way, but that is inconsistent with the E79 error, which is a hard drive error. Check the cables, then try running your machine without the hard drive. If all else fails, or if the hard drive is bad and under warranty, call 18004myxbox and get it fixed. If you need to send it out and will cost $ ask to speak to a supervisor, and they can usually get the cost down a bit. Good luck.
