changing x86 hw, keep disc?

Post by manilx »

Hi

I have dietpi x86 version running on a ZOTAC ZBOX CI547 Nano (Intel Core i5-7200U dual-core, Intel HD Graphics 620) and will change it to a Zotac ZBOX CI662 Nano (Intel Core i7-10510U quad-core 1.8GHz, up to 4.9GHz, Intel UHD Graphics (Integrated).

Is it possible to just swap the disc? Or do I have to reinstall from scratch?

Thx for any insight.

This is what I guessed... Will do then.

EDIT: Thankfully also starting from scratch is so easy with dietpi <3
