Move Your Hard Drive To Another Computer

Moving your hard drive to another computer is usually only possible if its in a external hard drive enclosure and then you can only get files from it such as media music and videos plus doc files and pictures.

But in the linux world you could move and boot your system in another computer because linux will rescan the hardware and change whats needed to run your computer. I recently had a computer mainboard die, that had an Asus mainboard with onboard graphics in it and changed it out into a case that had a gigabyte mainboard and a geforce 6100 video card and Ubuntu 11.04 operating system and just booted up and everything was detected and worked even the programs that were installed.

This is one of the many extraordinary things that makes linux unique
