I suggested to someone a few days ago to clonezilla and he said he got it to work for him. He was using Win7 and had to do a few modifications, but said it worked good. I've never used it personally.

Will these programs give me the ability to include what programs and drivers I want?

Not sure what you mean.
you want to start from scratch with an image you already have... so if you have the image and you want to start from scratch, then you won't need your currant image anymore. I'm i misunderstanding something here.

Why not clone the drive?, I don't see why it wound't work out for you.
What you are stating in you original post is that you just want an image of an OS with drivers and programs installed already. well that's cloning.

Well you know how company's will have an image for all for their computers with all the software and drivers they want on and ready to go. You can use this program Welcome to RT Se7en Lite - Slipstream Service Pack,Integrate Updates,Integrate Drivers,Integrate LP,Remove Components,Enable or Disable features,Unattended Setup,Apply Tweaks,Add Icons,Wallpapers,Themes,Bootable USB or DVD but for Windows 7 and I want a program's that can do just that like rt7lite can.

Ahh i see. I have no experience with exactly that. (even though cloning can do the same thing. the settings and tweaks are just done manually)

When talking about what companies do.
Usually it's all remote installed with an image that is somewhat a clean OS, but then via policies other applications are installed by .msi files and drivers are picked from a packed with drivers for all the companies different computers.
It's very cool. We use it where i work.
