Hey guys,

I posted here the other night about my Dell laptop being fucked.

This is now part two of the question.

If i were to remove the HDD from the fucked laptop (motherboard failure i think HDD should be ok)

Can i then just put my old HDD into a new donor laptop and start it normally, would that work?

I guess i would just to redo the drivers etc?

but essentially can i recreate the laptop using the HDD just with a different case/motherboard/hardware etc

I'm not to clued up on laptops, thanks again.

noob

I think it won't boot, but plugging it in will do no harm

I assume you have backed up any important data

If this didn't work i was going to use the HDD as an external drive to get what i needed off it, i really wanted to run it in a different laptop to save all my saved forms and internet related information.

yeah lmao ebin

I've done it
But i've also had some cases where laptops just didn't accept an HDD out of another
So it may or may not work
Theres still a chance

of course it wont boot you dickass

go back to posting in shitty consumer tech threads, post about apple watches and other gay shit stuff and buy a zen or 980ti or some shit
>>

Not even if i cross my fingers and wish hard enough?

Lies

>>52637174
you can always plug it in and boot off of a live USB to tranfer the data elsewhere
>>
>>52637189
>of course it wont boot you dickass
in a jolly mood, aren't we?
>>
>>52637189
>it wont boot
it can happen, I've done it
>>
>>52637239
Yeah i think I'll do this then, I'll take what i need off from it then try to see if i can salvage it.

Depends on both laptops. It's best to plug it as an external and get any data you need. Or boot from usb/sd/dvd.
