Insert T410 Harddrive into T400 machine in order to save Data

Hey Guys!

 

Is it safe to build a T410 harddrive into a T400 machine in order to save the data that on it?

 

I've heard that there's no risk to the T400 machine and one can use the harddrive, BUT the T400 machine can have different BIOS settings which the harddrive will then adopt, which will make the existing data of the harddrive unreadable. Can somebody confirm or refute this and if there is indeed a risk, how big is it?

 

I'd be super grateful if somebody could help me out here! Thanks in advance!

No, I don't think so. 

 

BUT, if you are using Windows you may get a blue screen, that shouldn't make the data per se unreadable, but if the Thinkpad doesn't boot  there's no much data you can copy.

Can you tell us what data you'd like to copy? Is the T410 damaged? Or the installation corrupted? Could you elaborate more on the problem? We may help better with more information

 

Welcome to the forum btw!!
