I don't believe you can. The only controller I know that will work on a PC is the wired 360 controller.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

oh, shame, this is wired just that the ending is different, there could be a 3rd party USB adapter

The original Xbox controller uses a USB wiring, but Microsoft put a different type of connection for the controller. The only way to use an original Xbox controller on your PC is to strip the wires and connect them to a USB wire, by simply matching the colors. It's very simple, as it's the same USB wiring, just a different connection port.

Agree with above.

As for the 360, you can use a wireless control, but you you need the wireless gaming receiver dongle.  Unfortunately, it was discontinued a couple years ago.  I do believe you can find them around the net though.  Now, they just sell a wireless PC version, which I think comes with a dongle.
