Playing Xbox Games on 360`

I have read on the microsoft website that you can burn a disk so you can play old xbox games. Will this work even without the hard drive or is it absolutely necessary to get the hard drive?

FYI: The link I read this on is here:

And I quote, second paragraph of that page:

Original Xbox game support requires a hard disk drive (HDD) accessory on your Xbox 360 console.

You supplied the link, hopefully you read it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
