If the versions are the same, you should be able to move the instance
from place to place (note, I say "instance" not database, instances
are the collections of databases that reside in one data area)

initdb on your SATA
start your pgsql, with -D to your SATA
load your data
stop your pgsql
remove your SATA

plug it into new machine
start pgsql with -D to your SATA
