    When you purchase your new replacement Hard Drive, also buy any powered USB Dock. Then, before you replace the HDD, clone the Yosemite Drive to the new drive, then put the newly cloned drive in you iMac. Then you can use the old drive in the USB Dock as a backup drive.

    No need for the original install disks.

    You could also do this using the restore feature.
