    Would someone please tell me if I can move a Westell hard drive with Windows
    Server 2003 insalled in a Dell 8200 and seamlessly install it in another
    System (e.g. Dell Dimension 2400) and have it run as it did perfectly in the
    Dimension 8200? I am trying to save a 4 yr old Dimension 8200 with a Windows
    Svr 2k3 system without having to 1st replace the PSU, CPU & Mobo. If I could
    just save the Windows Svr O/S with all its data would be a step in the right
    direction.
    thanks,
    Ted

  2. It's dicey to do this for a workstation. For a server I would
    never risk it. Here are a couple of links that might give you
    some pointers:
