    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.

    It's okay

    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?
