If you change the hard drive you will more than likely have to reinstall the OS.

How do you think the O/S is going to get on the new drive if you don't install it?

Yes. The operating system is stored on the hard drive. But you could transfer the files from the old hard drive onto the new one that you plan to put in your computer and then you wouldn't have to reinstall.
