You mean you booted your desktop from the laptop disk??? hard to believe that went without a hitch. Or did you just add the HDD as a second drive??

Or did you do the reinstall on the laptop's drive when it was connected to the desktop? If so that's the reason it won't boot (completely). You need to install the OS on the computer in which the drive is to be used.
