Easiest way is to uninstall and reinstall to the new drive. But if you're handy with editing the registry, it's no big deal.

I found Windows 7 images lacking in portability. I use Norton Ghost 15, but found Macrium works too, if a bit slower.

I don't use Macrium (still with Ghost 15) but that's not a flaw with Macrium. To me, anyway.
It's caused either by a change in the VSS snapshot, which is taken taken before imaging begins, or...

Best advice yet.
Unless you "just want to do it" there's not much sense in building a low end PC.
A prebuilt will have an OS, and the PC makers get parts wholesale, so the numbers don't work for...

Given what you've said, my alternative to imaging would be to set up system restore.
