If you had a factory-installed OEM license, and hadn't since
reinstalled the OS, the revealed Product Key is that of the drive image
used at the factory and not her specific Product Key; therefore, it
probably cannot be -- and definitely should not be -- used for a
re-installation or activation. She needs to use the Product Key that's
stored on the CoA label that the PC manufacturer affixed to the exterior
of the PC case, or on the bottom of a laptop.
