If I recall, there was a way in windows to setup different boot configurations. I can't remember where/how to do it (did it long long time ago.) What I'm trying to achieve is that I've got two new laptops coming and need to decide which one to keep. So I basically want to use each one for a few days before I decide. I want to take my current SSD in my Thinkpad out and put it the new machines so I have all my apps and settings the same as I'm used too (and no bloatware to deal with.) Typically when I migrate, I do this and then just load the drivers necessary for the different components on the new machine. But I don't want to overwrite my current drive config. So essentially I want three machine profiles, one for current machine and one each for each of the two new machines. Will this work okay?
Oh, I forgot, Windows license will become invalid when it sees changes in the hardware. That's why they had to remove it I'm assuming. Guess I'll just have to do some web browsing, etc. on the stock HDD install on the new machines. Moving my SSD around sounds like it won't work unless there's a decent 'grace period' on re-licensing Windows?
