    No, install disks are machione specific. He will have to purchase an install disk:

     

    If you are in the US call Apple Customer Support 1-800-767-2775, provide the Serial Number and specifications of the Mac, and for a reasonable fee, they will supply a replacement set of system discs (if available).

     

    The discs will be for the original version of the OS that was pre-installed when the Mac was manufactured.

     

    If you are in another country:

    Note, newer than July 20, 2011, Macs do not come with installer discs.  They can restore the factory software with a simple command-R boot.
