You can temporarily connect the old drive to the new machine. No need to install, just connect up the power and data cables.

You may need to take ownership of the files/folders.

it has to be connected somehow to transfer the information. If you don't want to connect it directly inside the new computer, you can put it in an old one then share the entire drive, or get an external casing and connect it as an external drive to the new computer.
