Xbox 360 live/ trying to set up consol

I bought a Xbox 360 for my son, I havea few games and he wanted to hook up live to play with his friends. Things to date:

Set up an Xbox live account on PC "Hence what I'm on now"

Set up a gamertag....and did the same on consol (identical)

Have good wifi connection and did the test

Set up live on consol, by adding first name (I assume this is just his name and not gamertag name)?

Next typed in my Hotmail email(same as I use for this account)

Typed in exact password (verified)


Unit then comes up and says "this account is already used on another profile"???


So I thought it's not working or maybe I'm already signed in......says to download gamertag from your PC to consol

I think I'm close but not fully hooked up.....I look at games and they show a buy price??

The card I bought had a 25 digit code which I entered on the PC account but my consol has not asked me for this so

 assumed I was not fully connected...........ANY HELP??
