Installing a game from the disc to the hard drive does not mean that you can play the game without the disc being in the machine, it simply reduces the amount of data that will be read from the disc during play.

To install the second disc, select 'Options' when viewing the disc in the 'My Games' section of the dashboard, then select 'Install to Hard Drive'. This is not recommended, but certainly possible -- though it won't do what you apparently want it to.

How Can I Get Games

GTA 5 is not currently available for download purchase on Xbox Live, and no release date for this has been announced that I can see.


To have more than 1 copy, you need to purchase the game with your credit card and install it on the first Xbox, then sign in with the same account you purchased with on xbox two, then download it and sign in your account and play. This method is 100% legal.


For games, get them of the xbox store and license transfer them.

Do I need to install the entire game to my hard drive before I can play it?

No. Some Xbox One games are pretty large, and installing the entire game, especially if you’re downloading it, can take a while. You can start any game before the installation is complete, though not all game features will be available. If you watch the download in the Queue or Games section of My games & apps, 'Downloading' changes to 'Ready to start' when it's available to play.
