It is a violation of the ToS to use a 60GB hard drive with a 4GB console.  It is classed as a modification and could lead to a console ban.

Even though you might be using an official MS HDD, you are still breaking the Terms of Use, and are liable for a console ban, as stated in the ToU.

(It seems like this thread was split off from another.) The profile Mister Gwyther is with Microsoft Xbox Support, as indicated by his user level S. Here's what he (and Microsoft) has to say about HDD modification, stickied to the top of this very forum:

Older harddrives, S-model consoles, and ToU violations

Older hard drives-S model consoles- TOU violations.

This is all the info you need to make an informed decision as to whether you want to risk your account/console (or both) banned from the service.
Also note if they wish MS are well within their right to take legal action against anyone at all found to be performing any kind of alteration to their products..

[quote user="Dontasciime"]The hard drive is not being modified it's still an xbox 360 hard drive[/quote]So that big plastic thing that sits on top of the old 360 fits into that hard drive slot of a 360S without modification, does it?  Square pegs fit in round holes too?  There is  only one way to put an old hard drive onto a new 360 is to alter the hard drive.  

  • Alter=Modify.  
  • Modify=Tamper.
