Windows 7 v Windows 8

I do love Windows 7. Rather elderly, I do not want to strain trying to understand Windows 8. I have had a go at it but disliked it. My question is:
I back-up to an external hard drive twice a week. In the event that I need to buy a new computer, would I be able to restore Windows7 over the pre-installed Windows 8 running the external hard drive?

By coincidence, the Don't Panic section of that prestige Sunday Newspaper covers my exact problem!
Were they snooping on us, looking for something to write or, just coincidence?
In any case, I did make the necessary recovery disks but still looking for my original disk or a serial number. On the other hand, I may never had have it but I did, as recommended and burn a copy of the installation disk! I might have to go back to the manufacturer for the product key!
