Format GD in spare PC??

  sputnick 11:22 29 May 06

I need to change the hard drive in my pc and I was wondering if I could format and install the O/S on a new hd in my spare pc and then fit into the one I want to change.
I do not want to ghost as I feel there may be some dodgy files.

If it is XP then probably no.

The installation is in effect tied to the hardware on which the installation is undertaken.
