Active Directory: SSID

We have a PC that is having issues with the motherboard. Instead of going through the lengthy process of swapping the motherboard, we were thinking of taking out the hard drive from the old PC and just putting it into the other PC with the healthy motherboard. Both PCs are the same make and model.

Question: The two PCs are in two different OUs. By placing the hard drive into the healthy PC, will there be a problem with the SSID or anything like that? Because technically, the AD object is pointing to the healthy PC. All of a sudden that healthy PC will have the hard drive of the old PC.

If the HAL and SSID are stored on the hard drive of machine A, and the hard drive is moved to a different machine (machine B), will AD view machine B as machine B, or will it view it now as machine A?
It will view it as machine A.
