    5. If you use external storage on your console, select the storage device to which you want to save the profile. If you don't use external storage, your profile will immediately begin downloading.

You should now be able to sign in using your Xbox Live profile on the console.

Important If you downloaded your profile to another console and you chose Remember Password, you have the option to remotely remove the password so that your profile can't be accessed by someone else on the other console. To learn how, see Manage your sign-in preferences on your Xbox 360 console.
