My blue rings Mybook crashed because it got too hot. Hard drives seem to be ok. I got a Mybook white light case and want to mount the blue rings drives into white light. Does this work or do I have to install Debian lenny from the scratch?
The structure of Partition 1 (BIOS) and the contents of Partition 2 (Operating System) are different between the Blue Light and White Light boxes. So it is not plug and play. If the HDD is truly healthy, you should be able to mount the HDD to a PC running Linux (or Windows with ext2fs installed) and read your stored data from Partition 4.
