Is the XBOX 360's serial number stored anywhere on the 360 other than the back of the console?

For example in the FW on the motherboard or DVD drive, or is it just located on the back of the console?

Other thing is are the motherboard or DVD drive tide to the serial number of the console in anyway? (I don't think they are otherwise we'd need to clone more than the drives key to get things working)

Think I may have just answered my own question. Can someone please go into System Info on their 360 and see if the Console Serial Number matches the one on the back of your case?

Been playing mix-and-match today lol

Just wanted to check before I took it online as I think Microsoft will be very interested in where this box is lol

Is there anyway to spoof the serial or console ID?

Well being as I was returning and swapping 360's to get my drive sorted I thought what the heck. May as well have the best Mobo, and drive out of the bunch lol

So the serial number on the outside of my box doesn't match the one in system info lol

Only problem is if I go online the case that this 360 mobo I currently have will be on it's way back to M$ at some point lol. So if they decide to look for the serial number of the mobo that was in the case online they will see me won't they?

Yeah Highlander told me about one of those stories lol, at least you got some use out of the drive ;)

I perticularly liked the story about the screwdriver mashing and the little note to M$ lol Now that was funny ;)

Wouldnt worry about it Monkey.... just because you have the swiped mobo doesnt mean it was you that swiped it mate... anyone could have pulled that trick (and many have done ;) lol) and then sold the console to a shop who then sold it to you as a pre-owned mate... or even sold it privately on FleeBay...just cos you're the end user doesn't mean that you pulled the swifty so I certainly dont see M$ even bothering with trying to find you mate ;)
lol.

Kick back, relax and enjoy your games mate :)

Glad you're all sorted.... he's a diamond that highlander ;)

A while ago, just after I bought my son's Xbox 360 my nephew said he had the 3RROD. He had lost his receipt. I, on the other hand had my my sons receipt but PC World were, at the time, writing down the serial numbers on the receipt.

But I devized a way around - I stripped the two 360's swapped their cases and took the broken one back with my receipt. Sorted!
