I currently have a Lenovo laptop that is running Windows Vista Professional. I have a complete image (OS, programs, and files) on an external hard drive. My Lenovo system has been acting erratic of late. When I tried to boot it today, it said the registry was corrupt, and it wouldn't load the OS. I was able to use the recovery console in order to get it back up and running.

My question is, if the Lenovo system dies, can I use that image on any new laptop from a different manufacturer? If not, would I have to buy a new Lenovo system to use the image? Or is this the only computer that the image can be reloaded on?

Basically, the image, like original Windows installation is tied up to computer's hardware, so if you find exact Lenovo model, it should work.
In other cases, no.
