    NOTE: There is a difference between transferring your iTunes library to a new computer, or simply transferring iTunes to a new hard drive/folder.

In the latter case, to which the present article refers, your iTunes library will be literally moved from its original location to the new location on the new system hard drive or the external HDD. This means that, after the transfer, your iTunes library will no longer be found in its original location.
