Got a HDD 250GB from a friend but,

When I plug it into the box, it takes forever to boot up and then it wont sign in.  I got this from a friend and he didn't use it anymore so it probably has stuff from him on it still.  How can I get this to work on my XBOX? FYI- its a 250GB Microsoft Drive

Is it an official drive?  You may need to format the drive if it is not working properly.  Also, if your friend has his stuff on the drive you will not be able to use it anyway as the games are licensed to his console and not yours.

Take the hard drive to your friend's house and put it in his console.  If it won't boot up on his then there's nothing that can be done as the drive will be dead.
