Upgrading by switching drives

I have a HP server which has 3 removable HD's, which I am only using two now.
I am still running 3.0 and my plan is to migrate to 5.1 over the next 6

Has anyone simply done the upgrade, training and conversions off line, then
simply taken the drive, shoved it in, did some simple drive mapping, and
called it a day.

I figure it will make it less intrusive for the people in the office. They do
not need to see me banging my head.
