Swapping Hard Drive from a HP G61-429WM

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

The hard drive on my HP G61-429WM ended up dying. I plan on upgrading my HP G60-445DX hard drive with the following http://www.crucial.com/upgrade/HP+-+Compaq-memory/HP+G6xx+Series/HP+G60-445DX-upgrades.html

 

What I wanted to know is, can I swap my working hard drive from my HP G60-445DX into my HP G61-429WM? I plan on doing a clean install of Windows 7 64bit but wanted to know if there might be any compatiblity issues by swapping the hard drive into a different HP model.

 

Hope to hear from the support team,

Doogie

Hi,

 

You can swap HDD (empty) between two machines.

 

Regards.

Thanks banhien for the reply! Good to know I shouldn't expect any problems from swapping hard drives.

 

Best,
