The only catch is if the files for recovery were stored on a partition on the hard drive and you happened to wipe that when you installed the new OS. If that is the case, the recovery won't work. If the recovery disk is just a bootable OS disk containing all the files you need, it should still run on the system. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
