As long as there were no changes to the setup, yes, you can restore the
image and not activate, I've done it many times.
Which DVDs are you talking about?
Acronis True Image gives you the option to create an emergency disk. Once
you've done so, be sure to test it but be sure you can in fact boot from it
and access the functions you need. If yes, that is all you need.
By the way, if you are purchasing the downloadable version from Acronis,
they offer the download file on disk. This is not an install disk but
simply the download on disk in case you lose the file in a crash or
accidentally delete. It's worth the small additional fee since the
downloadable file is not an image file and you cannot create your own setup
disk from it.
