Migration issue

Hey guys, I have a windows7 image that I am putting on different dell model. I notice that when I start up the machines, they continuously reboot. Is there a migration tool that i can use to stop the reboot?

I would expect that restoring an image to new hardware would result in problems. If I understand correctly, that is what you are doing---restoring an image of PC 1 to PC 2 when PC 2 differs considerably from PC 1?? Particularly if the chipsets on the motherboards differ.
