I don't see why not. Are you are doing is hot-swapping in a new HDD. should work perfectly fine.

I've had it work successfully many more times than it not work properly. The main chore I encounter is finding which hardware is still logged as recognized on the new computer from the donor computer (yet it's obviously no longer there), and uninstall the drivers accordingly.
