Completely ignorant question...

I am taking a backup hard drive out of my old PC and placing it as a backup in my new PC. Do I need to clear it (format) the hard drive?

My PC already recognized it and installed drivers and it's working fine. It reads all my old files from my other PC. It is labeled as my E drive now.

Also, do I need to change settings in the BIOS for it and the boot sequence?

Total beginner questions. Thanks in advance!

Answer to all of your questions is nope, and no. The only thing you may want to do is to delete the Windows backup files from the previous computer since those will not likely work on the new computer.
