That is in fact, incorrect. You can do this by using Windows Automated Installation Kit. You first sysprep the installation, this removes all the system dependent information like users. Next you use imagex.exe to capture the installation and stuff it into a WIM file. Things are a lot more complicated when putting it on a DVD and getting it installing however. Otherwise if you can mount the extra HDD to another computer and image it that way.

I was pretty sure there was a way,

logicearth would you be able to elaborate a little more please?
Or is there a link you could direct me to.

Also, would this allow me to complete the guide at lifehacker?

Could I use this post at Toshiba: Recovery media - Toshiba Laptop Forums

And edit that to make it for Ultimate, or is that a completely different disc they're referring to?

There really isn't much material at the moment. However, it is a complicated setup meant for system administrators deploying Windows to multiple computers.
