Default Sony Vista OEM question

Hey guys,
Let me start by saying that if this post is not acceptable for this site or this section please feel free to remove it.

I have a friend who is visiting long term from brasil with her Sony laptop. I got a few copies of vista as image files. I installed Vista using her cd-key from the sticker on the bottom of her laptop. Installed fine, then a week later she is getting asked for a valid key. We try re entering her key and same problem. The version of windows installed is the same as the key.(In fact the version of windows I got asked for teh key and then told me the version it was for)

Could the problem be that the key is a Sony key? Or is there something I may have missed? Any help would be appreciated, the disc cannot be located in Brasil and we do not really want to purchase a new OS
