Using Drive Image will over write anything existing on the hard drive so there is no sense installing a new version of Win 7, just to over write it with an image

✔ Best Answer
If you create the drive image using the Windows 7 back up section, you can use your Windows 7 Repair Disk (also made in the back up section) to boot to and restore the image to the new drive.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
