Is the 2008 VM network adapter in bridged, NAT or host-only mode?

Have you installed the WDS server role on the 2008 VM, it also needs AD, DNS and DHCP

With Windows XP and WDS you have to create a reference image to deploy, so in order to make that reference image you will have to install XP on the laptop anyway.
