No problem Josh.

When the image is restored, Windows 7 will be exactly the same as it was when the image was created. If activated when the image was created, then it will be activated afterwards.

Don't worry about it Josh. We all have our moments of brain lock.

"4. If you saved the system image backup on a set of multiple DVDs, then insert the last system image DVD from the set when prompted. If not, go to step 5 for a system image backup on a hard drive."

This may have been covered in this thread, and forgive me if it was, but I just want to make sure. I created a system image using 3 DVDs, I was prompted to label the first DVD "#1", the second DVD "#2" and the third disc "#3" during the imaging process.

"last system image DVD"............... When I do a restore with these 3 discs, do I insert disc #1 first and then #2 and #3, or is it backwards of my thinking, and do I insert disc #3, then #2 and #1??

I have never done this before and I hope it's not a totally stupid question, but "last system image DVD" wording has me confused!

Thanks in advance!

You will have to insert the No. 3 Disk (In your Case) And then Windows will tell you which to enter next when it has finished with the 3rd Disk

Hey thanks Josh! I'm glad I asked, cause that's not what I would've done.

Step One 2-I saved my butt. Thanks.

I had forgot the desired backup needed to stay as "WindowsImageBackup". Couldn't figure out why it couldn't see the backup or any others like before, after I had wiped my system drive and didn't keep the current backup as "WindowsImageBackup".

It seems that I will have to back up my system and restore to a new laptop, same make, same model. The disks will be the same size - everything will be identical but not exactly the same. Should I expect any problems?
