Okay, well I have a 3.5" internal HDD that I put into a external enclosure that hooks up via USB or eSata. I have many computers availible to me to install it. A core2 duo, turion x2, athalon x2, pentium 4, core i3, and pentium dual core. Since she is running a pentium dual core should it work out okay? I wont install any drivers until i get there, but ill have them downloaded. She lives about an hour away and I dont want to spend the whole weekend on the computer.
Thanks for the help!
Drivers may not matter. If the HAL is configured for a specific machine's array of hardware, booting the hard drive on a different, incompatible machine will mean you won't be getting into Windows on the new computer to install drivers. You can take that chance if you want, but don't say you weren't warned it could happen.
Windows 7 is generally pretty flexible in this regard, as compared to Windows XP (Vista was pretty flexible too), but I still see this happen every now and then.
