2 questions:

1) Is the disk system specific

2) After running Create a System Image, you get prompted to create a repair disk. Does the repair disk know where that backup/image resides (network, external drive, etc)?

Thank you

1. The DVD has to match your Windows 7 system to do a Windows 7 Repair Install.

2. I think you will have to tell your Repair disk where the image is (because you could have moved it). I have to tell Ghost where the image is.

A System Repair disk is described here.

Although you choose the drive on which the System Repair disk will work when you create the disk, it is not drive or System specific as long as you stick with Win 7.

Its use is to boot the PC if needed and to reach the System Recovery tools.

System Repair disk has no knowledge where the System Image resides.  If you choose the option of  System Image Recovery from the System Recovery screen you will be given the option to pick the location of the System Image.

As said, the system repair disk must match with one you have installed.
And if the backup is on local disk or on the usb disk which you made it to - the repair disk will find it automatically. Otherwise you have to point the restore wizard to it.

Two specific questions were asked and both were answered by three Experts.  
Just because the Asker never replied does not invalidate the answers.

The OP has apparently died or is too lazy to be bothered.

I suggest an equal split between the three experts who provided answers appropriate to the question.

I agree with John Hurst.
As I said in my earlier post
"Just because the Asker never replied does not invalidate the answers."

eenookami--I appreciate your "fairness to experts" approach.
