Disk images are dandy, in theory, IFF you can replicate the motherboard, CPU, etc. on the machine you are trying to recover to - often you can't though.
That's not that difficult to fix IMHO, I've recovered images to different hardware plenty of times with XP and 2000 (not had the misfortune to have to use Vista in anger yet). It just takes a little thought and some knowledge which is easily found if you can use Google and know what to ask. Of course, if you image with no compression you may also be able to mount the image as a virtual machine on the new hardware and extract your files from that.
