    Hi @Hammad Nadeem

    Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q & A Platform .

    Regarding your question , Azure doesn't support the OS Type change osDisk.osType .

    Also you can make copies of OS disk and use them to swap with available backups in the DR situations

    Ref:

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/snapshot-copy-managed-disk?tabs=portal

    Thanks,
    Pradeep
