For myself, I'd fire up then clone. There can be all kinds of manufacturer specific additions (not including bloatware, which I'd gladly jettison) included in their image of Win10. I'd want to carry that along, particularly if you need to get their tech support involved in the near term. I'd also be careful to verify that this will not void your warranty, which you wouldn't want to do in the short term, either.
