  • Have you done a search here in the forums? Both options have been discussed in the past, and I believe those who tried it found that it does work in some circumstances. The situation I would be concerned with is that when you image the system drive, you will also collect the tombstones. If you then restore the system drive, after you have used WHS for a while, those tombstones will no longer be valid. You could conceivably lose a great deal of data.
