    No!

    You can not use the Recovery disk designed for A215 because the A215 is simply different notebook model which need different drivers as the L305!

    The image on the recovery disk contains the OS, drivers and tools and if you would use different recovery disk then wrong drivers would be installed on the L305 and this can lead to other troubles!!!

    Jaba is correct.

    It may not even start the installation because it detects the model of laptop.

    If it does install, you will probably see a BSOD on bootup, most of the drivers will be incorrect, functions/buttons wont work properly, and other problems.
