Can I upgrade the motherboard and cpu of Y700-34ISH Desktop (ideacentre) - Type 90DF?

I currently have the prebuilt Y700-34ISH Desktop (ideacentre) - Type 90DF with Intel i5 7400 and GTX 1060 6gb, but I want to upgrade the motherboard to one that can install Ryzen 5 2600 as the new CPU. Is this possible? And if it is, will I have any problems with Windows 10 that came with the PC?

Upgrading/Changing the motherboard is possible as long as it will fit on the computer including its screw slots. Upon checking the specifications of the motherboard of the computer, it is an ATX. 

 

Regarding with your OS Windows 10, there should be no problem with it however once there is an issue and needs a re-installation or clean install. You will be needing to re-activate it again manually. There are some softwares you can use to get the product key installed on your computer.
