Hi mad_skillz
As long as the 2 computers are identical in every way then you should have no problems, where you have to be careful is mass produced PCs as they can sometimes have different Mobs in them due to supply and demand etc so a like for like HDD may not have the required MB drivers on it, this should not pose a problem if you have access to them.
Good luck and let us know how it goes or if we can assist in any way.
