The change in hardware would probably break the system install.
Was re-reading this thread and noticed this last sentence. This is a rather important disadvantage to closed systems like Windows that does not occur in Linux. Windows locks in on drivers to identify the system so you don't violate the EULA, no other reason (well, possibly a few supporting entries in Registry) but Linux loads modules/drivers on-demand. Unless you custom build a kernel that only supports exactly the hardware you have on that box and no other, Linux is eminently portable. Most default install kernels, for example are designed to pick up on and support any hardware it detects. It's not wriiten in stone..... or dollars and litigation.
