I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with mikey11, at least if you want the resulting restore to work.

 

System images contain the licensing information for Windows 10 that is directly linked to the motherboard on the machine to which it was licensed.  You are not going to be able to restore a functioning Windows 10 installation from machine X on to machine Y and have it function.

 

You could not do this for any version of Windows that I am aware of.
