Windows 7: Sharing a SSD between a desktop and a laptop?

Sharing a SSD between a desktop and a laptop?

Is it recommended to share a SSD between a laptop and a desktop? Assuming I went back and installed all the nessesary drivers for both, would this cause any problems? Ive heard win7 is pretty stable and efficient when it came to drivers etc installed a long time ago and never having to use a registry fixer/driver cleaner when updating hardware.

Would this work the same way?

It would not be a good idea as each computer requires a different set of drivers. Every time you swapped the drive Windows 7 would have to locate and reload the drivers for that system. Guaranteed to fail at some point.

My post was about sharing a windows installation/physical hardware and it got moved to network and sharing.
