Hi, I currently have a zephyr console, which is basically a core console with no hdd. I have a spare 160gb Hitachi 2.5" SATA her that came from an old msi netbook. Just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction if I can use this as a hdd, I have the wiring sussed but just need to know if I need any special programs to prep the hdd or can it just be formatted and put in place? Thanks, Scott.

You can't use that hard drive in a stock console. Xbox 360 drives contain a security sector which is paired to an individual drive. It is possible to use some limited models of hard drives in 360 consoles using a program called hddhacker, but your drive cannot be used for such processes.
