i have installed windows 7 fresh + drivers  + updates on an SSD
since updating takes so much time - i want to make an image of a basic , updated system
i thought to run Adaptive restore on it - would that be enough?   then make the image?

Hi nobus,

you mean for sure P2P Adjust OS functionality. Adaptive restore was a name of technology as far as I remember and then they did rename it to P2P Adjust OS.

Then, this wizard is applied usually when the image is already restored. So in general, you take an image of updated and well configured system, then you restore it under WinPE Recovery CD for HDM for example, and once the restore is done - select P2P Adjust OS - but only if restore is done to dissimilar hardware.
If the hardware is not changed - then no need to apply P2P Adjust OS to it. Simply replacing HDD with SSD is not a hardware change in point of software view.

yes - P2P
if i apply the P2P to my existing install - will it not be directly useable on other systems?

for some cpu's and hardware changes - i think i will get boot problems if i apply the image as is

Yes, it will be - if you use Automatically Adjust without specifying any driver.
for some cpu's and hardware changes - i think i will get boot problems if i apply the image as is
For this you have on the boot CD where you perform the restore in - a wizard P2P Adjust OS. Means - you can run it as second step always when the restore is finished.

Run P2P Adjust Wizard, select the OS, then you should see two options manually select drivers or let the wizrd do it. Once wizard selected it will search for drivers in c:\windows\system32\~driverstorage
