Default Restore Windows7 backup from SSD to HD

Hey Everyone, just looking for some advice on this.

I currently have a Windows7 machine using a OCZ Agility 60gig SSD. It does backups to a WD 2.0tb green drive using the built in Windows7 backup.

I have built a new computer and want to move the SSD to my new PC. I plan on formatting it and installing Windows7 again. The old PC will be for my parents, so I was wondering if I can just use the backup which was created from the SSD and put it on a WD Black 640 without any problems?

I found lots of threads talking about restoring from HD -> SSD but nothing going from SSD -> HD. Just seeing if anyone has done this yet?
