Unique ID of boot sector

Specs: Linux
I wish to boot a drive in a different machine after being signed and formatted. I was hoping to accomplish this by taking another drive of the same model and formatting it in the new machine then copying the boot sector and slapping it on the old drive. Is this feasible/possible?

what's the purpose of it? i don't get it.
Since they are the same model, why don't you just install 2nd HDD as slave, set as active.

Do you mean you wish to use the same copy of WinXP to boot TWO computers?

Yes it is feasible by cloning the drive to the other.

But why? This serves no purpose which tells me you have an issue but don't know how to properly address it.
