Hello, I'm currently planning a budget build and in order to save some money i wanted to use my existing laptop hard drive. I know it is possible to connect using an adapter but there is one thing I am unsure of, is it possible to use the existing data operating system etc. installed on the hard drive to run a desktop? If i need to make changes what do i need to do? thanks!
