    I have a question of (loaded) hard drive compatibility between systems. Here is what I'm trying to do.

    I just bought a 15" powerbook g4 with an 80gb HD and I'm upgrading it to 320gb. I ALSO have a 12" powerbook g4 with a crashed hard drive. Am I able to simply put the 80gb 15" HD into the 12" and have the system run? or is the OS loaded according to the computer's specifications?

    In other words, will I have to reinstall the system once the old hard drive is put in the 12" PB?

    thanks!

    more info

    The hard drive will be taken out of a 15" PB g4 1.67GHz and put into a 12" PB g4 887mHz.

    and the OS on the drive is 10.5.8
