Thank you Chirag and Andrew for your advise.  The reason we are doing is because we are migrating/Upgrading to new OS.  Also some of them are appliances.  Want to make sure if his method will work.   Is there any other way we can migrate between different Operating Systems?
Linux can read NTFS - so yes maybe but Linux reading and writing NTFS not recommended!

Windows cannot reads Linux partitions without third party drivers!

And the same....

You would be better migrating the files and folders!
