    If all you're doing is adding a 2nd hard drive, it's no issue at all, the only problem you could have is if you don't set the boot priority in the BIOS, so it tries to boot off the new drive not the old one.

    If you are using multiple drives in a RAID array and you want to add an additional disk to the array that's a different matter.
