    Yes, you can use the recovery drive from another computer as long as the bit level (32-bit v. 64-bit) and the version of Windows (Home v. Pro) are the same. The extra stuff (mostly hardware drivers) will be loaded onto the "other" computer, but just won't be used. If there is any hardware on the "other" computer that require manufacture's drivers, then you will have to obtain and install those drivers manually.

    Personally, I don't bother with system recovery drives. I have vanilla Windows 10 installation discs made from the ISO's downloaded from Microsoft and have computer specific drivers stored separately for the hardware that requires it.
