You'd be much better off just finding an Xbox emulator for your PC (if there's one available), because the end results will be exactly the same.

PC and Xbox hardware configuration is different, so there's pretty much no chance of this working.

In fairness, if you have 4K of games, you could just try replacing the drive, or get another Xbox? They don't cost much these days.
