It looks like you basically have two options (without going rogue).

If you've been using cloud saves and don't actually need any info off the old hard drive you can just re-download the games you purchased before.

If you actually need the data from the old hard drive then you can transfer it from the old one to the new one using a transfer cable.

You definitely can't re-download the games since they're not associated with your profile, and I'm pretty sure you can't even transfer them from the old hard drive because that would involve moving them from one profile to another.  Try the xbox360 forum on reddit.

I installed my old hard drive in the new xbox. I can see all the games that i had but i can't play with them.
