uhm, do you mean making an image of OS/2 in a specific computer model and put this image on a computer with the same profile ?

I use Drive Image to do that. Only if the machine models are the same, or to have some kind of recovery CD for my computer.

You can always use Ghost.

Don't forget to use any Desktop Archiving tool to restore the Desktop (all folders and extended attributes) I recommend two tools: WPSBackup and WPSTools. I use WPSBackup, contact me if you have any questions.

Well to move some OS/2-installation from one harddrive to another:

1 Create Partition(s) on the new one and format them, add Bootmanager
2 Boot from OS/2 install DISKs (so that no files on your HDD are open)
3 Do a "XCOPY <SOURCE> <TARGET> /S /E /T /H /R /V"
4 Disconnect old HDD and boot from new one
