    I would like to say yes. But I have no idea what a digital image of an OS is - lol.
    If the OP means a saved image (Acronis etc) I didn't think it will be possible. He will encounter many problems with different hardware, but possibly could eventually come up with a working OS?? Never tried it.

    Hehe, I did a bad thing... I made an image(ghost-still by far the best imager out there), of an HP laptop, and then loaded the image onto my acer laptop, and my win8 maintained its activation... and win8 didn't have a problem installing the drivers for my acer even from the HP... (makes you think internally most newer laptops have the same hardware configuration of different companies). Oh, as an ICT admin, i removed the Win8 from the HP coz the person wanted Win7, so even on my acer, the key is not used.
