operating system

will a recovery disk off of one system work as an operating system on a blank hard drive for another system?

Short answer......NO.

Recovery disks are made for specific hardware and will install OS plus drivers for that hardware. Also, most will detect system type and wont run at all if your system type is incorrect.
