While recovering my toshiba x770 with the factory recovery disks during the setup installation it continues to stall while configuring. Always at the Realtek LAN driver load. I want to use a system image from a different laptop i had previous. Will this create problems with my hardware?

Some backup and restore software have feature "Recover system to dissimilar hardware", which can restore system image from a different laptop to new hardware.

I remember Farstone, Acronis, Easeus backup have this feature.

Please try them.

Windows usually won't run when it's moved to a system which has a different motherboard. Moreover, trying to run a factory pre-installed OEM copy of Windows on another PC is illegal. The pre-installed OEM copy is tied to the laptop it was supplied with. When that laptop dies, the OS dies with it.
