If you've backed up the whole disk including the recovery partition? If so I do not see why not.

Welcome to Eleven Forum.

Yes, as long as the image contains all partitions required to restore Windows. If you're not sure which you need to backup, Reflect has an option to automatically choose them for you.

    fully 'Windows 11 ready' laptop. Windows 10 C: partition migrated from my old unsupported 'main machine' then upgraded to 11. A test migration ran Insider builds for 2 months. When 11 was released on 5th October it was re-imaged back to 10 and was offered the upgrade in Windows Update on 20th October.

I did the same thing last night and it worked fine. I installed Windows 11 on unsupported hardware (CPU was the only thing) and customized it and played around with it for a while. I was actually quite surprised that I was OK with it considering all the negative things I have been reading. Anyway, I then made an image of Windows 11, saved it, and then reinstalled my Windows 10 image. I be getting a new computer soon and then will probably use Windows 11.
