Question: Can I just transfer old storage HDD to new computer as same storage HDD without formatting?

I am building a new computer but decided on transferring physically the old storage HDD to the new one to save money. Can I do that by:

1. Physically install HDD as secondary to SSD

2. Manage BBS in UEFI as second HDD to boot to

3. Manage computer to recognize HDD as storage drive (no format)

Should the drive then show with all data intact?

Thanks in advance!

Yes it will work. It is similar to using one external drive (I know you are referring to internal drive) from one computer to another. No problems at all and all your files will be visible.
