the OS from the laptop will not work on the desktop because first of all they need to be same OS and also that key is tied to your particular machine as it is an oem key most likely

if you want to install windows 7 for example on your desktop then just buy an OEM version, either 32bit or 64bit depending on your machine, Home Premium OEM is only $99.99 and if you are a student then you can get Professional Upgrade for $29.99 (you can use upgrade key on fresh install, just search online)
