if you leave the disk in... it should not change anything... if you unplug the USB on the move, it might not boot the right way, so you might have to hook a monitor up to the box at the new location, or leave the USB stick in..

 

When it connect to the new network, than watch out a change of the IP address which properly will change...

 

That should cover most of the problem you might face, The rest should be troubles with the network settings on the new location...

 

Happy moving the system =)

perfect that worked great thank you. One odd issue. I had to unplug all but one internal hard-drive in order to reboot. If I plugged all 4 in it would not boot up. Once the menu boot appears I could plug in the other drives. Any suggestions please

A Harddrive take the most power when it spin up from begin turned off. Depending on your settings and size of your power supply. You might draw to much power when all the harddrives try to spin up at the same time. I believe I have read somewhere that you are offset the spin-up of each drive, but I do not know how.

 

It might explain why it will not boot up when all harddrives are plugged in.
