Assuming it is an SATA compatible drive, remove the drive from the compact, attach it to an adapter or use and external enclosure, use your disk utility to reformat it and install a system. Drop it in.

If you intend for the hard drive to run you OS then you will need to format and reload you OS after the switch. the system wont work from one to the other.it will only work on identical systems. however if you are using the hard drive for storage only and not trying to run an OS from them then simply swapping them in as an auxiliary drive is fine making sure to activate them in drive management . heres an instructional video on the hardware end
