Mycloud gen1 os5

Hello everyone
I have a question for you:
But if I pull away the disk from mycloud and clonezilla I make a backup, can I reassemble it without reinstalling all the software?
Or maybe remove it and put it aside and then test with other disks. In the end I would put the original one that has not been modified.
Thank you

On this device; OS resides on the disk.

So - - - new drive means new OS install (see threads in the MyCloud OS/3 subforum)
