Hardware Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Is there a guide on how to migrate a system to new hardware? Is it as simple as just putting the existing drives into the new box and booting up?

I have moved the HDD and USB drive to new MB/CPU and it worked 1st time. Intel Atom based mobos for source and target.

I've swapped between h/w several time and it works ok.

 

but i always did a 'test' first with a spare hdd and xpe usb to boot up and make sure DSM could see the drive, NIC worked etc and also the bios did not reset on reboot. Also give you a chance to set bios settings to work best with XPE/DSM (ie SATA mode, disable peripherals etc).
