    I have a 2009 macbook now running sierra on an SSD.

    It is great and works well, quite impressed.

    Now I am also getting a 2009 macbook pro in next week or two.

    What If I swapped the HDD?
    I think Sierra will error and crash.

    But is it conceivable that it might work?
    I will make a full time machine backup as I normally do first.

    Worth a try?

    AS I said I think the hardware ID will make it crash/error/etc.

    Worth a try! Let us know if it works.

    (Originally said it would work fine, as I forgot the MBP in question doesn't officially supported Sierra)

    due to finally get the macbook pro early next week.
    will let you know if the swap works, after I made a time machine backup of course.
