Cloning works when you are swapping drives in the same system.
If you want to attach an existing installation of Windows to a new motherboard it might work if you are using Win 8 or 10.
It definitely will not work with older windows versions because the installed drivers are for the original hardware.

If you have win 8 or 10 then install AME on your computer. Attach the new hard drive to the old computer and clone to it. Then swap that drive to the new hardware.
When you start it it may need several hours to configure itself and download drivers.

And, of course, if the original pc is an oem (dell,hp,etc) nothing is going to make your existing OS boot on new hardware )

If it's the latest version (Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 Suite) with system migration wizard, yes.
Older versions don't have that feature.

However, I would use dedicated software for doing it (AME as recommended above), not something that claims to be able to do everything.

Yes . This is called cloning .

You install the software on your computer , plug the new hard drive into one of your motherboards SATA ports , and start the software .
It will partition , format and clone your drive completely including windows .
Once you unplug the old drive the system will boot from the new drive .

Just make sure you set the cloning software to take over the entire drive and not keep the partition the same size .
Acronis Migrate Easy is a free download from seagate too but their version only works if one of the drives is a seagate drive
