The key audited from the HD is not the one you want when you are changing the activation from factory auto-activation (OEM-SLP) method to user activated (OEM-COA). You want the key on the COA sticker for that.

Correct - also, the SLP key you get from JellyBean finder only works if you have the associated license file installed, which you won't if you install from anything but the recovery media. Also, the OEM product key is tied to the hardware it's installed on, so no moving OEM keys from one machine to another legally (even if it's stolen).
