You have to reinstall the OS when changing platforms else you will likely have issues due to firmware and driver conflicts.

If your on windows 10 you can likely use the built in restore function. Or you can try and use your current OS. It may work.... but it may not. It will certainly boot, but you may run into driver issues.
