Can I install my son's OS on my wife's computer?

My wife is locked out of her netbook (W7 Starter). We're far from home with no backup or password recovery disks. Can I create a backup from my son's identical netbook and install?

My son and my wife have the same version of netbook - can create a backup of his OS and install on my wife's netbook? Wife's netbook is new, so there are no files on it, and it's used for internet anyway.
As far as the password goes, it's really weird - it suddenly stopped working, so it's not as though she forgot the password.
