Anyone tried moving their install to new hardware?
« on: August 08, 2018, 08:53:28 AM »
Hello,

I want to refresh my lab install but I want to be lazy and not reinstall and reconfigure everything. Anyone tried moving their install to new hardware? Essentially I'm thinking about making an image of the OS disk, and then connecting it to the new hardware and seeing if it'll pick everything up and get the new drivers and just kinda work. The biggest change is my hardware refresh moves from AMD to Intel. Desktop Windows this was reasonably OK to do, maybe with a little prep, like I could do a boot with most non-essential hardware disconnected, uninstall all the drivers I can find specific to that config and then move it?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
