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.
