Yeah I literally just did this this morning.

Dell sent me a replacement drive yesterday for a hard drive that broke.

I installed Windows at the office then took the hard drive to the remote site and just popped the drive in.

I could have taken the whole computer back to the office, but the computer is big and bulky.

Just make sure you handle the hard drive with care and use an anti-static bag.

One way would be with a network connection. Having both PC on the same network you could share the files and with a simple copy and paste you could be done. Even a cloud service could be used as an intermediary to transfer between computers if they are on the same home network but connected to the internet. But shy of that yes the only way I know of would require an external device like like a usb thumb drive.

This is possible too. You could remove the hard drive and just bring it in to the tech or hook it up to the other PC (assuming it is not encrypted) if your just trying to transfer the files to another rig.
