Hi,

 

I thought I'd post this here to ask more about installations of Windows or ( even OS X) but lets keep it Windows.

 

Two years back 1st PC build - Asus Z97-AR motherboard with Haswell CPU.

 

One thing I've worked out is that I can take a HDD installation out and put another HDD in and do another installation, so there could be a Windows 7 install and a Windows 10 install too or even for an installation of OS X

 

When someone does an installation on say the Asus Z97 motherboard above, is it possible to take the HDD out and put it into another chassis with a different motherboard in, would this work?

 

I've not tried this but ask from the more exprerienced builders what would happen?

 

Would it cause major problems?

Hello. I've installed dozens of system on other machine's HD plugged into my HP Z400 via USB or eSATA and never had problems. The only thing I had to do was put the appropriate DSDT (when needed) and make some changes in Clover config.plist (e.g. CPU type, graphic card injection, Mac type) in the destination HD.

Hi,

 

I'll have to try this sometime

 

The reason why I asked was in case there were records of the hardware eg motheboard on the HDD install that would prevent the HDD from working in another motherboard.

 

So, if and when I get an installation working correctly I could copy the entire disk externally and use in AN other machine -  :)
