  1. First, that is not within the scope of the OS license.

    That said, it is unlikely that a laptop install will be able to load drivers that will work with the desktop components. You will probably get a BSOD.

    Some will say you can never start up with a different motherboard, but I find that you often can with Windows 7, but from a laptop to a desktop is fairly unlikely.
