Like not actually removing the HDD securities? And, just to be clear, you downgraded (didn't turn on the A5), patch with the 1.6.43 patcher kit (didn't turn on till after and then ran DTi), and then shut down, booted to recovery and dragged the 1.7.11 pre-patched firmware and booted. Then you shutdown the A7 and swapped drives, went to recovery, selected format (what did you see when you clicked it?), and then some prompt (I have yet to see) came up and asked you to connect and load the (same as old) firmware.
Your right I can't know this for sure. I'm just making an educated guess.
After I did each and every step I started up the A7
When I clicked on format the first time I saw something like "Setting up media'
After that I selected format again, but you could also select the repair option.
You should get the prompt telling you to connect the USB cable to your computer and at that point you copy your prefered patched firmware to the archos then you press the power button and it should find the update and install it.

When I hit it a second time it just flashed on the screen (it did not freeze on the second select click) and I closed out and rebooted and saw the penguin.
The DTi should look like it's frozen when you run it, that's normal
