__Can I install Windows 7 on another computer using an image of my Windows 7 drive? I have 2 valid upgrade licenses for both computers. I was hoping to avoid a second custom install.

I have 2 PCs and just installed Windows 7 on the first one and I would like to duplicate my original image on my second Windows 7 PC without having to reinstall all my apps and data again.. I need to do a clean install on the new Windows 7 PC. I have created a Windows image from my original PC.

Technically yes, but there might be driver complications involved and you might end up trying to repair disk errors and repair the Windows 7 installation itself.
