Yes that's what I did. More specifically I copied the fedora disk onto a new partition on a SATA drive in the new computer using dd.
I don't know exactly what is wrong with automounting. I assume it has remembered the older motherboard or something. I'm just looking for a way to reset/reinstall the automount facilities really.
Anyway. Here's my /etc/fstab
