    Windows 10 Pro

    Use the recovery function of whatever backup program you used to recover the image back to the hard drive.

    A problem may exist in that the various versions of Linux [about 250 or so] use a different formatting of their partition and Windows may not be able to deal with it. With that in mind I'd download gparted.iso and create the bootable CD, boot to it and check the main partition formatting, may have to either reformat it to NTFS or delete and let the Windows Factory Restore do its thing. Some OEMs had a small program to run the repair but may need Windows running first and some OEMs had a process where it could be run at boot up, a key combination to start it.
