I set up a system today running High Sierra (10.13). I'd like to reformat it to run off a backup of my other Mac, which is currently running Mojave (10.14). For various reasons, I would rather not update the new system to Mojave at this point, namely software compatibility.

Is it at all possible to set up my new computer from a Time Machine disc last backed up with a newer version of macOS ?
