Actually thats not correct you can get away just fine with a different NIC and Videocard. *unless these are integrated*

Its just like powering down your system and swaping the graphics card, then booting it up. (all you need to do is install the correct driver and your good to go)


Its the motherboard that will give you the Biggest problem, but you can still accomplish it, with a windows Repair.

You only need Norton Ghost on the machine you create the image with..............
The rest just boot from the CD and restore the drive to the image.

Sure you could have, but there can always be compaibility problems you can run into.

But i have done imaging on systems with different video cards/ Nics, with excellent results.
