My windows 7 disc wont work on laptop but works on desktop? Tags: Laptops Windows 7 Desktops Last response: February 11, 2013 11:01 PM in Windows 7 Share bingaloman February 11, 2013 10:43:07 PM I burned a backup copy of my windows 7 disc and it works on my desktop but when I try to reinstall Windows on my laptop, it doesn't work.
