    Restoring Windows 7 Image onto virtual drive in Windows 10


    I have Windows 10 Pro on a new desktop. I have created before an image of Windows 7 system on my older PC. I was wondering if I create a virtual drive in Windows 10 (on Hard Disk), whether it's possible to restore the Windows 7 image on the virtual drive ??

    :)

    Windows 7 Image

    I need to backup the windows,data,programs (A) installed in the hard disk n.1

    I want to use the feature(restore windows image) of windows 7 installed in another drive (hard disk 2) , so of another windows 7 (B) started up.

    So, Can i startup windows B (installed on hard disk n.2) and use the feature to create an image of windows A (located on another drive, Hard Disk n.1)?

    Good question... Dunno if Win 7 will think it's been installed on another PC because of a different HDD and ask to be activated...?
