Trouble moving profile from old XBOX one to another newer XBOX one S.

Hi. My son always gives me his last console when he upgrades.

I had his original large black XBOX One and it is on its last legs, He has bought a Series X and given me his white slim XBOX One S.

Heres the problem.

My profile on the old XBOX One was a 2ndary one not connected to Gold, LIve etc.

I have managed to back up the profile along with the main games I play to a USB 3.0 Hard drive. That part went ok.

When I connect it to the newer XBOX One S, how do I retrieve it? I managed to get the game onto it, but see no way how to add the saved profile.

I don't have an email linked to it, so can't retrieve it that way.

On one vid, for XBOX One x it said press 'A' on the controller and the console will see the USB drive and the profile. This just doesn't seem to happen on the 'S'.

Not sure what to do as the old XBOX One is on its last legs.
