Recover a windows 7 image on windows 8?

Hi all,

A few months ago my HP pavilion dv6 laptop killed its second Hard drive. I decided to get a new laptop with Windows 8.

I backed up my system regularly and so have an external hard drive with a backup image created using the windows 7 backup and restore program.

Will I be able to use this to recover my data on windows 8?
