I've read numerous warnings online about the pitfalls of taking a hard drive from one computer and inserting it into another.
The user *must* ensure the correct "Large" and "LBA enabled" mode settings.
Further, different machines use different core geometries, e.g. 256/255/240/16/15 heads; sectors per track; bytes per sector.
If I manually enter the correct information in the BIOS setup, am I right to assume that the risks are minimal to non-existent, especially if I'm using the same operating system or something closely related? Ditto the same BIOS manufacturer: different (but closely-related) build.
Any other hazards I should know about?
