View Full Version : [ubuntu] Putting an HDD with Ubuntu on another Desktop PC

August 28th, 2009, 03:29 PM

I am looking for some insights into possible problems that might appear if I install Ubuntu on a particular desktop PC and then move the whole HDD on a different desktop PC. I remember this operation was practically useless on older Windows versions, but never tried it with Ubuntu.

Any advice?

Thank you very much everyone.

I've done it and it worked, but it was such a long time ago I can't really remember details! The two machines were a similar spec, but different manufacturers. I tried the same HDD in both machines and kept the one which worked best - the one that didn't have VIA graphics...

I think it was Hardy Heron.
