Usually, it is quite easier to restore a disk image to the original device than another one. But, it can be tedious to restore a disk image in a new or another computer.

Keeping the merits and demerits in mind, we introduce four effects of restoring disk image in a new computer.

1. No guarantee if it works

Of course, you can try to restore the disk image into a new computer hard drive, but there is no reliability if it will work.

2. The process may fail

There are chances that the restoration of the disk image on a different computer might fail. Suppose the new computer has different configurations other than the original computer or no same drivers installed. The restoration process will fail to succeed.

3. If the process is successful, you may find issues

Yes, the disk image restoration works on the new computer; the chances are that it may suffer from issues.

Slow PC, system crash, or unbootable drive are some of the consequences you may face after restoring the disk image on a new system.

4. It can work with conditions

Yes, there is a possibility that the disk image restoration will work for the new PC. But, certainly, some conditions can save you from the after-effects.

If the two PCs have the same motherboard, all drivers are installed, and both have the same configurations, it can succeed.


It is important to ensure a safe backup of the original data to eradicate data loss problems. It may work or not. It all depends upon the condition of the computer disk image and the new computer.
