I've cloned the disks in windows to different hardware.
It's a pain, but the process was load over the required drivers for the new hardware.
Installable, but NOT installed.

Clone the drive. Put the clone in the different hardware machine, boot into safe mode without networking.

get the monitor/keyboard/mouse drivers first. Generics usually work at first.

reboot normally.
Apply all of the drivers specific to this machine.
After about 10 reboots. You are pretty much good as gold.
Now, deal with all of the software/copy protection like QuickBOoks, etc.
That recognize the drive changed, or the CPU changed or the core hardware changed.

Back in the day WINNT, we did this in order to upgrade developers computers without reinstalling everything. Probably did this about 30 times.

Anything that causes a crash just requires safe mode boot, installed the new hardware driver, and delete the old one.

USB and Networking are the single biggest nightmares. And nowadays the entire Mainboard and subsystems.
