I've bought a new Xbox 360 with a Hard Disk installed, but when I turn it on it asks me for a hard disk and asks for additional USB drives?

What's going on? Did they include the HDD in it or not?

New Xbox 360s come with HDD drives disconnected. To connect it follow these steps:

  1. Turn off the Xbox.
  2. Press the hard disk switch near the vent and pull it out, it rotates out to reveal a hard disk slot.
  3. If you have a HDD already inside, then remove it by pulling its leash and reinsert it tight.
  4. Turn on the Xbox to have the HDD detect.
