I did something similar many times during the beta testing. In my XP box
that had two hard drives - one for the OS and one for data - I would
disconnect both drives and throw in a third for Vista. After the install
I'd reconnect the data drive. Vista saw it every time and had no problem
using it. So you'll be fine.

You won't have a problem at all with that. I have several in removable
HD's. I take them to work and back between Vista and XP machines. Works
like a charm, no reactivation, etc. It just goes.

Re: Data Transfer from internal hard drive

Will this process work for an internal hard drive placed in the
expansion slot as well?
