Running Windows on an Xbox is such an overhyped idea that it gets pretty boring after all these years. The fact that the Xbox-Linux project advertised the Xbox as a 'legacy-free PC' didn't help either. Yes, in theory it might be possible to run Windows 98SE or a more modern Windows on the Xbox. You will need to completely program your own BIOS (IBM-compatible for Windows 98SE or perhaps EFI for the most recent Windows NT-versions) in complete assembly. I do not see anybody doing that soon. Using an emulator isn't an option because of the lack of performance and limited hardware support.
And no, the Xbox 360 will not run Windows natively.
