Yep I did that on my main laptop and my Sandy Bridge with an upgrade 8 then updated i to 8.1 with the fee download.

Mind you I still run them in 7 style with Classic Shell a I don't like the Metro panel stuff and if you want a tip don't go hoeing into the free apps I had to do a complete reinstall after thinking I could sue them only to find it clogged the machines really bad.
If you are interested in the 7 look Start Menu - Restore in Windows 8

I must say though using 8.1 has speeded up both machines considerably.
