Step 4: Opening Your Xbox
Take your xbox, disconnect anything and everything from it and flip it on it's back.
Now Peel off the corner plastics (see picture 2) and poke through the plastic to unscrew all 6 torx screws.
Flip it back careful not to let it open and when you have it on same ground lift the top part of the case off.
Now in order for you to hot swap your xbox you will need to move your xbox as close as possible to your computer. With the case off connect the power and video cables back on.
You have both the Xbox and PC hooked up as normal. You will use the Xbox power supply to supply the power to the Xbox hard drive.
DO NOT DISCONNECT ANY CABLES FOR NOW
