Did you use the supplied shortcuts in the "tools" folder in the XBMC file you downloaded from xbins?

I had this problem once. It was caused by that I didn't have enough space on the hard drive. I'm guessing XMBC needs to load a rather large cache of some sort to be able to load. Find a skin that displays the space available (it's displayed in bytes usually so 324.204.038 would equal around 324 MB). Make sure that both the C and E partition have enough available space. If your friend hadn't upgraded the HDD then you will probably run out of space quickly if you use it to store full Xbox games. Basically you just need to clean up all the stuff you don't use and take up a lot of space (ROM files for emulators of more modern games can also take up a fair amount).

Whatever the figure is, it's far less then what you've got available. Still, you might try manually wiping the contents of the X/Y/Z partitions as well as E:\CACHE.

Has XBMC ever worked for you, or is this the first time you've attempted to use it?

It may be better to go get an up to date build (check the XBMC forum section for details) and try that instead.
