Restoring to dissimilar hardware is not available on Mac (neither for OS X, nor for the Bootcamp partition).

Acronis Universal Restore is a free tool available for Acronis customers, which allows you to make the old system bootable on new hardware. This may be useful, for example, after replacing a failed motherboard or when deciding to migrate the system from one computer to another.
