Check out Acronis True Image 9.1 with Universal Restore feature at 

This has the facility to restore on dissimilar hardware. Checkout the 
documentation if that suits ur requirements

Thanks & Regards

  Hi Amit, 

  Well first you'll need to buy Symantec Ghost Corporate Edition so you have 
the 32 bit version. Then if you have a server such as a HP Proliant DL-580 with 
a 6400 Smart Raid Controller you'll need to add the Raid controller driver to 
your bootable CD Rom that you'll have to create so it can access the Raid Disk 

  If you Want to create your own Bootable CD, I would recommend you use 
Microsoft WinPE or Bart's PE http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/.

  Barts also allows you to use Acronis http://www.acronis.com/ which may be 
less expensive then Ghost Corporate, however I have only used Ghost Version 8, 
32Bit and can attest that it works ( I've imaged several hundredservers with it 
at ADP Payroll Systems ).

  Hope this helps, the rest is up to you and requires that you read the 
documentation with each product.

  Best Wish's, 

  Jose Medeiros
