Test bench to live operating core
« on: November 14, 2007, 02:35:04 pm »
Just a quick question I could not seem to find an answer to on the forum.  I am currently running LinuxMCE on my test bench computer; can I just take the hard drive out and place it in a new core machine with different video, network and audio cards? Or do I need to move the audio and video cards? 
 ???
What problems may I encounter?   
Should I re-run the wizard?
If possible this would save me a lot of work in setting up the new core.

You should probably re-run the AVWizard when you move the disk to another machine. The Pluto scripts will try to detect the hardware change and make appropriate driver changes, but there may be little video mode differences etc that appear.
