    I've only done this with Norton Ghost
    1 download the manufacturers current drivers for the second pc to a folder on a portable drive
    2 Using Hiren's boot cd create the image to a portable drive
    3 using Hiren's boot cd restore the image to the second computer
    boot the second computer to safe mode while crossing your fingers
    if the second computer is sufficiently similar to the first , boot will be successful
    then you can install the drivers from the folder, starting with the chipset, video and mouse

    The important part is if you can get it to boot is to install the drivers fresh from the manufacturer, rather than from the recovered image.

    Does this help ?

    Sorry for my bad english, is not my language.

    I know how to restore a -recovery image- on different hardwares very well ,

    My problem is on the second computer:

    when "windows update" (win 8.1) checks for new updates ON 2' PC, it finds "later drivers" & "drivers" of the original image (first pc) TOO.



    is it possible to CORRECT "windows update" (win 8.1) of the second pc so hardware that is not present on second pc?

    example:
    -1st pc have synaptic mouse + nvidia vga
    -i made an image of this machine
    -go to second pc
    -restore image on 2nd pc
    -2nd pc HAVE elantec mouse + amd vga

    I boot 2nd pc , start "windows update" and it finds updates on synaptic,elantec,ati &nvidia
    could I re-set "windows update" settings to SEARCH only elantec+amd ??

    I hope to understand me..

    Now I understand the issue
    I thought update would switch hardware updates to the new computer
    rather than continuing with the other computer's hardware
    We need someone who knows more about this than I

    sorry
