By disk... i assume you mean HDD, and not disc... as in cd or dvd?

If they want a HDD to clone, with a hardware copy unit.

Build up image, then run sysprep.
Make sysprep turn the machine off, then disconnect the hard drive.
Read up on sysprep on MS site for more info.
I guess the legality of this is abit dodgy as ur accepting eula for your clients.

If you mean a DVD that reinstalls the OS or runs a repair install... then this is a different kettle of fish.

Great pre-made solutions you can fairly easily modify and customize to your environment. ALternatively, if you dont find one you like there, I have a great one I've melded together from years of butchering other boot disk ideas and adding my own little parts :) just PM me if you are interested.

And no, its not a sales gimic. :) The only thing it will cost you is time to modify it to your needs.
