Would the OneKey Recovery "Recovery Discs" work on a NEW hard drive?

Hello

 

1) This is Lenovo Y580. My Windows 7 keeps throwing a warning, "Your hard drive is about to fail.".

I launched the One Key Recovery option and created a recovery disc on THREE DVDs.

 

If I buy a new hard-drive, and use this recovery disc, what would happen?

 

Would it create the same partitions as before, i.e. partition 1 as SYSTEM_DRV, Partition 2 as "Windows_OS", Partition 3 as Lenovo (for Drivers) and unknown Partition 4?

 

Please explain how the recovery works on the new hard-drive.

 

2) Are these discs enough, or do I need to create a System Image? I click on Create an Image ("System Backup") on One Key Recovery and use my external hard drive as the target, However, it is stuck in the "INITIALIZING" stage and fails after 10 minutes. Can anyone help me understand why this happens?
