It might work but it's not a good idea, you need to use your manufacture's installation media which has the right drivers and will accept you numbers.

If the computer is very old and the factory installed programs were mostly junk, I like to use a generic oem disk from microsoft that matches the numbers and liscense on the computer and just add the drivers from the manufacturer's web site.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
