I'm not exactly sure what you mean. But, if you mean you want to take an image of the entire desktop hard drive and then copy it to the laptop, it won't work because none of the hardware drivers will match.
You might get lucky in that once you copy the image to the laptop you may be able to boot into Safe Mode, where you could then install the correct drivers. However, assuming you already have a valid license for Windows on your Desktop, you will need to ensure you have a valid license for the Laptop.
Having said all this, it would just be easier to do as dc3 recommended: format the Laptop and reinstall Windows.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
