Sorry, no, it won't work.

Actually this is not only wrong but counter-productive. You MUST repair permissions from the boot drive because the boot drive contains the latest details of what the permissions should be. If you have installed any software updates a 'Receipt" is left on the computer which details what the correct permissions now are. If you repair from a boot CD the information contained in the receipts is not acknowledged and therefore permissions maybe incorrectly set.
