View Full Version : [ubuntu] Moving system to new mobo and cpu?

April 9th, 2009, 09:16 PM
I want to move my system from one motherboard and cpu to another, faster one. My question is if I need to configure for the new hardware before I make the change or if I can just swap it right away and do the changes on the new system?

HI -- can't give you a definite answer one way or the other, but I've installed Ubuntu on a Acer laptop, then witched the hdd out to an IBM thinkpad, and it worked ok. I'm guessing that's not going to be the case in all situations.
