I see you're on Fedora - while I have your attention - it implies that Linux is hardware agnostic - does that mean if I installed Linux on an HDD, I could just live boot it from disk on any machine I plugged it into?
Certainly it seems to imply in my current case... (if it was Linux) I would be able to boot the OS right from the HDD as a virtual machine?
No, Linux simply doesn't die when you move the HD from say my computer to your computer. Assuming I didn't radically change the kernel, it would work fine. If I did that with a Windows HD, it would BSOD. If I moved it to another x120e, it'd be fine. It's a driver thing.
I'm a total Linux noob so you aren't allowed to ask me any more Linux questions, just Windows and VM questions. If you post in the Linux section you can get a non-noob response.
