You should not try to create a disk from your desktop for you laptop. Try calling the laptop manufacture for a discount on a replacement Operating System (OS) disk. Many send them out for just a shipping charge.

You could also check the laptop so see if it has a partition which has the OS on it but make sure to back up all you data before you use it as many people reload there whole computer to factory settings, which removes all their data.
