Lynx? The web browser? Just install it on the other computer. Same with any app.

There is no seawizard. There is seatools and there is disk wizard. You want disk wizard.

You can't clone a drive and stick into another machine and expect it to boot. Won't happen. Besides, you'd then have the same registered OS (assuming a proprietary OS like Windows) on two machines, which also will not work.

As I said, I'd just install Lynx on the other machine.

Either runs off a bootable CD.
Download and burn the CD as an iso image.

The Seagate cloning program likely will not work unless at least one of the hard drives in the system is a Seagate. Ditto for Western Digital's cloning program.

I've been using Macrium Reflect's free imaging software with great results. If you're looking to make a clone of that master computer, give it a shot.

I have been using Casper - very happy with V5 - they now have V6 available.

This product has saved my clients and - sorry to say, me too!
