Seek is correct that if you choose to restore your old PC's image onto the new one, then you'll also need to run ReDeploy. And if your old system used Legacy BIOS booting and the new one uses UEFI, ideally you'd want to perform a custom restore process that will allow the old system's image to be bootable in UEFI mode on the new system. Macrium has a KB article about that.
But call-out about matching the edition of Windows is a good one. If the "outgoing" PC is licensed for Win10 Pro, and the new PC is licensed for Win10 Home, then when you restore the Pro image, chances are it won't activate -- unless you've got your Windows license linked to your Microsoft account, in which case you would be able to reassign the license tot hat PC.
As for Reflect, if you'll be migrating the system image, I believe you do NOT need to deregister Reflect. That's only if you'll need to perform an actual new installation somewhere else -- or even on a clean reinstall of the same physical PC, as I learned when I failed to deregister Reflect prior to this and heard from Macrium later on. (I explained the situation and it was fine.)
Capturing an image backup of the new PC before you do anything to it is a very good idea. And in fact when you've done that, if you post screenshots of the partition layout of the old PC's last backup and the new PC's initial backup, that would help identify whether there are any special steps you should take if you want to perform this restore.
