I am planning to buy an old i3 4th gen and some NAS HDD.

 

Supposed my current motherboard and processor  died after sometime.

 

How am I to move my old HDD to a newley built PC without loosing data?

The migration of HDD between Synology and Synology only takes place of DSM migration of the system partition.

 

Data partitions are not affected at all.

So, all I need is to move the HDDs to a new PC and with the usb bootloader and I'm good to go?

Of course.
However, if possible, try the DSM installation first using the newly built Redfill bootloader and a separate new disk.
If there are no problems here, you can migrate the disk with the actual data directly.

Thanks, trying to build my first nas and just wanted to know the future proof of Xpenology.
