✔ Best Answer
SATA is Serial ATA so I assume both are the same and the acer drive would fit in the HP. But the windows 7 installation on it woudn't run on the HP since that install is locked to the acer hardware.

You're welcome. Yeah up through windows 98 you could move a drive from one computer to another and have it work but MS soon realized they could lock the install to a particular computer thus forcing a new install if the drive was swapped.
