    w7 do not recognize the image system of w10 in a back up?

    I had updated windows 7 home premium to windows 10 then when the update was complete I created a backup image of the whole system.... and saved in an external HD. then my fixed disk died, replaced by a new fixed HD I can not recover the backed up windows ten image from my external HD ... is that due that when replaced the new HD I am contrived to recover the system with windows 7 home premium and windows 7 do not recognize the backed image of windows 10?

    Need to either use Windows 10 recovery disc/USB to restore the Windows 10 system image, or clean install Windows 10 to the new HDD. You can't use Windows 7 to restore a Windows 10 image.
