That all depends on the type of images that the PC manufactuter uses.
If it relies upon the diagnostic partition that exists on the HDD, then
you are pretty much stuffed. So if the HDD fails completely, then you
either have to mess around getting a copy of ImageGhost or similar in
order to pull the image off the disks onto the new drive.
But not all image disks are like that, and the Sony VAIO PCV RX10C I
have in front of me is one example. I swapped out the internal 80G drive
for 2 x 300Gig Drives and re-imaged the system with no problem.
(I've since deleted the hidden partition ditched the Sony Image and
installed XP Prof and a *nix OS)
