If you're in a corporate environment, you should get advice from those who deploy images.
At home I've taken an image (Ghost 15) from a sysprepped PC and loaded it to a different PC that has entirely diferent hardware.
It doesn't really "fit" but it *does* loads Win 7, which then configures the drivers contained in Win 7 to bring the system up, looking just as it did on the computer that was sysprepped, all progams still there, and ready to execute.
This is all with the native Win 7 drivers.
If you have non-Win 7 drivers you need to load on a machine, that's a different issue.
Cluberti gave you some advice on that, but I can't.

Just me and another tech thus why I was asking here for some help. If you input the drivers in to the image it should be about to find it and boot to it, the issue is I'm trying to find out how.

Are Unix systems more secure than Windows systems?
Lately, I've heard some people say that the Unix code is more secure than the Windows code and that the Windows code has many holes and bugs in it. Before, I always thought Unix systems (for example, Mac) were less likely to get infected by viruses only because they had a lower market share....
