    I'm going to be moving in a month.

    I brought 2 new macs within the past 3 months (one macbook and one 24 in imac).

    However, I'd like to be able to just leave a copy of one of my mac's restore disc at my old house and just bring the other recovery disc with me.

    So can I do this. Can I interchange one recover disk for another and still restore either one of my macs with it?

    Sorry, the disks are customised for each specific Mac they are supplied with. The MacBook disks won't work with the iMac and vice-versa.

    Why don't you copy the disks and leave the originals safe at home?
