I have a laptop which I'm going to return due to battery defects. As I have already configured everything on this laptop, I'd like to migrate the installation on the new laptop (when I'll get it). The one to replace has a 128 GB eMMC, and two USB 3 ports. So, I was thinking to
- Boot from a Linux live USB from port 1
- Make an image with
ddof the eMMC, saving it to a external HDD on port 2
- Do the reverse on the new laptop
My question is, will it work fine with Windows? Does migrating this way have any issues? Would I be able to restore the installation if the new laptop is a different model with at least 128 GB?
