[ubuntu] move NvMe to second computer

You must be from the future. Ubuntu 23.10 will only start development 3 months from now.

In general, you can move a harddrive with Linux from one computer to another and simply expect it to boot. Just keep in mind:
– Both must be UEFI or both must be legacy mode. Legacy mode is getting a bit uncommon these days, so I don’t expect that will be a problem.
– Both must use the same architecture (although 32 bit in an amd64 computer works). Pretty much all computers are amd64 these days, except the ARM systems.
– Before moving, disable proprietary graphics drivers, if any, unless both computers use the same graphics hardware.
