I have a new computer and have installed Fedora on a spare disk for it. There will be quite a bit of work to get it set up like my current one, and to transfer the data from the disk in the current one.
I think that in the past I have just taken the current disk from my current computer and put it into the new computer. That would save a lot of work, but does sound like a bad idea.
However I don’t what the installation process does to tailor the OS to match the hardware, perhaps nothing - in which case the easy way would work.
Good point. I agree that it is good to keep up with things, and after quite a battle with the installer I did persuade it to accept btrfs on the new disk. However I’d rather abandon that and stick with the current disk even though it is Ext4, as it will save a lot of work. I will switch to btrfs when I have to use a new disk, for example if I buy a bigger one.
[Edit] It’s now working…thanks!
