What could possibly prevent me from detaching my current hard disk from the laptop and buy a new laptop, install the disk and resume from where I left? In other words, what prevents my current Debian 9 installation from being counted as portable?
- If Grub entries are using solid references (UUID is the correct solution instead of
- If the new laptop's CPU architecture supports my installation (x64 in this case)
The new laptop should boot up (and is booting in my case).
Drivers might be missing in the worst case, but my intention is creating a script called
switch-to-new-hardware.sh which will install:
- Graphics card driver (if it can, if needed)
- NIC (eth, wifi) card driver(s) (if needed)
- Sound card driver
What should be taken into account while switching to new hardware?
