Any suggestions? I have 3 spare computers that I could do this on with out using any of the primary 3 towers that are in use.
I don't think this is going to work. Firstly, the Xbox OS is not going to recognise your CPU, GPU etc. Secondly, all hardware on the xbox has a uinque key which must match the key stored on the HDD (anyone thats had to swap out a DVD drive or HDD from the Xbox will remember what a pain this is).
