Good bye Karl, this is your personal opinion. After testing for a long time both Ubuntu and Fedora I personally stay in Fedora for the superior hardware recognition. Have you tried to change a Video Card or monitor in Ubuntu? Have you never extracted your Ubuntu HD and put in a different HW (different MoBo, different Processor, different Video Card etc)?

Moving your disk isn't going to work in fedora either without a lot of contortions if your new disk controller needs a different driver.

It isn't?

I've done it on RHL 7.x (and before) and Debian. I don't see why it wouldn't work with the latest Fedora or with Ubuntu.

The disk driver module has to be included in your initrd and if you have a different controller you'll need a different module before you can access the disk where it is stored. If you know as much as anaconda does about hardware you can build a new initrd either before moving or with a rescue dvd boot. I've used a brute-force approach on Centos where I do a minimal install on the new hardware, then toss everything except the contents of /boot, either copying the new /boot partition to my old disk or copying everything else from the old system to the rest of the new drive. I'd expect that to also work with fedora to get to a point where you can fix the rest of the drivers.
