SSD from laptop to desktop question.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had my ssd in my AMD laptop, took it out and put it into my Intel desktop and it booted up, I thought this wasn't suppose to work and I was going to have to reformat it

Is it safe to keep it like this? or should I format?

Thanks.

It would would work on any x86 architecture processor.
You might have issues with chipset drivers (AMD vs Intel) and hence with USB Bus and probably other hardware unless the OS detected the different hardware and downloaded the correct drivers.
Also, if you run a MS Windows OS it might detect a change in hardware and you'll have to register it again with MS.
Just check Device Manager for conflicts, or do a Sys Info.
