    I already had a memory card so I transfered it over after formating, but you can recover your gamertag from the live blade. Select recover gamertag, enter your Live email and password and it will recover you gamertag onto your storage device. To format the hard drive go to memory, select hard drive and format. You'll have to enter the console's serial number to continue.

    there should be an option in the system tab. just look around in there. remember that it will erase your game saves and downloads when you format it. then on the new 360 go to the xbox live tab and select recover gamertag. then it will find your gametag and set it up.

    It's hard to say it mandatory. I've seen 2 reports of bans from new Cores using hard drives from banned consoles. They were early in the bans so who knows? Maybe MS realizes it's not good to ban from that. Still I say it's better to be safe than sorry.

    Format it again on the 2nd 360 just to be on the safe side.

    I think you should be safe online with a brand new Core with ixtreme until MS can figure something else out. Who knows how long that'll take? People talk about the disc response times, but it seems non stealth backups get people banned. Obviously Ixtreme won't load non steatlh backups. I've been on Live for 10 days now with a new Premium 360 with 5.3a only playing stealth backups.
