I have several client running Win7 supplied Backup and Restore for not only their daily backups, but also capturing a complete system image.  I have had to use the image to restore a entire machine that a hard drive went bad on and it worked very well.  What I am wondering if anyone has had any experience using the Backup and Restore system image to another computer with different hardware.  I am not talking about RAID, or some exotic technology, just replacing a desktop with another desktop similar, but not exactly alike, then getting the image to restore.  If I had to let Windows update find drivers on the new machine, that would be acceptable to me.  Thanks for your input.
