    My mac mini 1.42 has a logic board issue. The fan runs full speed all the time even when it's off!!! I have bought a mac mini 1.5ghz. If I swap the hard drive out of the old machine will it work? I hear I may have to re register morphos and get a replacement key for the broken machine but other than that I'm presuming it would work OK?

    There's no reason why the old HDD wouldn't work.

    It worked fine swapped over and no issues.

    Just need to sort the key swap over now.
