    Using restore image from a W8.1 desktop to restore laptop


    I have a Lenovo G585 laptop that I installed with Linux (tried dual boot) and accidentally wiped out the Windows 8.1 restore partition. Now I want to restore it to Windows. I also have a Dell desktop W8.1 that I can use to to create a USB restore image, can I use a restore image from a desktop to fix a laptop?
    Thank you,
