The old xp laptop is most likely OEM, if so you can't use that key to upgrade a different machine.

Well first with the new one you will want to make sure the manufacture even has drivers for Windows 7 before you get rid of Windows 8,which is much better than Windows 7 anyway. I have seen alot of post where people have jumped headlong and formatted there hard drive just to find out that Windows 7 would not install on there brand new Windows 8 system.

First thing would be to go to the manufactures website and verify that they infact have drivers for Windows 7 for your make/model.
