Can I delete the Windows.old and Windows.old.000 after reinstalling Windows 7 ?

Is it safe to delete the Windows.old and Window.old.000 files after reimaging a machine with Windows 7?
The laptops we image come with Windows 7 already loaded on them. When we receive the machine we are immediately booting up and loading a Windows Image we created and put on a local server. We are basically loading a Windows Backup Image, we are not using Symantic Ghost or any other imaging software. After the machine is reimaged we are seeing 7-8Gig of files in the windows.old and windows.old..000 files and we would like to delete them if possible without messing up the new install. Any help would be greatly appreciated
