I have never had issues restoring using the windows image using the built in software. It does a file by file image not a sector by sector so hard drive size does not matter nor will partition sizes.

I'm just speaking from experience, others have reported the same issues, and reporting they had to shrink their partition sizes before
making the image so they would restore to slightly smaller drives, I didn't do that, I just went with different software.

Get rid of the system reserved partition using

bcdboot c:\windows /s c:
then you can mark the main partition as active and delete the systemreserved

Then any disk imaging software will work and you can restore the image to different computers

All it needs to do is create a partition > mark it as active > Format > dump the files.
