I recently updated my CPU to AMD5600G from a 10 year old Phenom II 910
x4.This required a new AM4 B550 motherboard and DDR4 RAM.

Initially I just installed these in my existing case, connected up the
old SATA drives (2 x 500 SSD GB RAID1 and 2 x 1TB HDD RAID1+LSB) and it
booted up fine.

Worth checking that your fstab and grub identifies your drives/RAID by
UUID or LABEL, rather than /sdX and /MDx, as these can change order
when connected to different SATA ports.
