I haven't been able to successfully make an image of a Windows 7
computer, and restore the image to another computer with identical hardware.

I installed the patch to correct the blank screen after restoring the
image when using sysprep, but now it goes into the "mini setup" to enter
user information and I get an error stating the installation cannot
proceed suggesting I reinstall from the Windows 7 media.

I'm trying doing this on Dell Vostro 200 computers with identical hardware.

I have also tried creating an image without using sysprep and I get a
0xc000000e (doesn't even display the Windows 7 splash screen) when
trying to boot Windows on the computer with the restored image.

Any ideas?
