  • When a OS is installed it copies files for all the hardware components...memory, video, sound, motherboard, etc. Moving the drive to other computers will not work because it won't recognize the new components.

    You can't keep the OS if you want to switch the drive, you will need to copy your user profile data off the drive and then format it.
