What is the absolute easiest way to create an image that would work on any computer. It's very easy to image using ghost or acronis but what about for any computer? The OS will be windows 7.

If you do a sysprep before ghosting it will work on different hardware.

Sysprep removes sids etc, what about drivers for specific machines?
