Web Gateway question

I am new to the web gateway, I have been tasked with migrating our current physical web gateway to a virtual one on hyper-V.  I have not had much luck with my google-fu today (guess I might not be asking the right questions)

so we would like to migrate our current version from to (or the recommended virtual appliance for Hyper-v)

I assume we could build the new VM set the IP's of the nic's the same as the original one then we can do a backup of the original gateway power down/disconnect the original gateway from the network.  then connect the new virtual gateway to the network same IP's then restore the backup file.

I guess my concerns would be if i could just restore a 7.6.x backup to a newer version gateway without any issues?  I would also like to know if there are possibly any good guides around for the migration i am trying to attempt?

Any information would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance.
