If these DVDs you have are from the exact same make and model notebook then Yes you shopuld have No problem using the ones from your notebook on her notebook.

If they are Factory DVDs then they may not even ask for a License key to be entered as they are more then Likely SLP versions (System Locked PRE-Installation versions).

But if it does ask for a License key just use the one from her systems COA sticker.

You should always first run Recovery from its partition which is the most stable method, then save the disks only for backup. Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility

If theyre the same model then you should be able to use the same Recovery disk set if necessary.

You can also do the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
