Symantec, Acronis and StorageCraft have their own methods to image and restore to different hardware. It can also be done with standard imaging software. John and I have discussed this in the past.


Whether you call it Universal Restore, Restore Anywhere, or some other term, the major software manufacturer's are clearly going in this direction.  Whether it was DOS, Windows 9x, 2000, or XP, techniques to accomplish this have always been discussed particularly in the backup/restore product forums.

I think Brian it was several years ago we had a thread on this topic.

It's not a unique concept.  Originally Microsoft had many KB articles, which they called "Moving to a new motherboard".  This was way before any automated universal automatic software was available.

Here's a couple of the major vendors:

Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery Desktop Edition

Acronis Universal Restore

I wouldn't be surprised if Ghost 15 included Universal Restore next year.

I forgot to mention that TeraByte have a tool for migrating Windows to completely different hardware. TeraByte OS Deployment Tool Suite. Unfortunately it's not easy to use.
