Re: swap hdd possible ?
in theory it is possible, but unless the machines have exactly the same hardware you might find it wont boot or you have to spend hours sorting out drivers and kernel modules.
a better option might be a Network Install. ubuntu has a wiki page on it https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/Netboot
alternatively, if your machine is capable of booting from a USB stick you could install it that way too https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...n/FromUSBStick
the USB install looks like the easiest way to go, but obviously depends on your machine being able to boot from USB (check the bios options to find out)
