Here is a background. I have been using Manjaro on my PC and laptop for the last couple of years. Same computer and laptop the whole time. I have replaced SSD’s, cloned installation, and even full wipe many times as I jump from DE to DE or mess up, etc.
About 8 months ago, I finally found the setup I want (most relaxed with) and it has worked with no issues. Now I had the opportunity to order a new PC and since mine is almost 5 years old, i figured why not since I can use this as a replacement server for my 12 yo Xeon server.
New PC should be here by Thursday but I have a few questions. My specs are as follows.
HP 705 G2
AMD Pro A8-8650B APU
AMD Ryzen 7 4700G APU
My questions are as follows.
- Can I just swap the SSD into the new PC and boot with little or no issue? (I have never moved an installation to a new PC.)
- I will have a backup just in case but can I restore the backup to new hardware without losing packages or settings? (Again my backups have never been used on a different PC.)
Sorry if these sound like simple issues but I dont want to break anything since it took more than a year to figure out what I was looking for and I came from Windows before that and any changes can break an install.
If this is in the wrong place I am sorry.
