I want to have my system with me in another city. I know that it strongly depends of my chipset. I have P35 (Gigabyte P35DS3R). Another machine also Intel-based but chipset is G31 (MSI G31TM-P35). Is it possible that my system will start on that machine when I plug in my hdd?
Windows 7 will be aware that the hardware has changed and will ask you to call an automated 1-800 number to verify and re-activate your Windows installation and again on your return when you plug your HDD back into your current system.
