Re: Moving HDD to different system

How would one go about "repairing" the installation of Mint 4.0 in a similar fashion to Windows XP? (I'm sure the procedure will be totally different; I'm really just concerned about the end result). I've installed Daryna on a system to try it out and have configured it some. I've transplanted the HDD into a completely different system (the one it will eventually run in) in the hopes that it would be able to boot. It does, but not fully into a useable desktop. I'm not sure where to start, so if someone could point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it. I'm not familiar with many of the underlying concepts of Linux, so any relevant literature would be welcome.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It should just work more or less
Is it the same video card?
If not uninstall the video driver and install the right one
This is what comes to mind in the first place
