I can't do that because this is a laptop and the other computer is a desktop so it has a 3.5 in (I think that's the number) drive. I'll try the other method mentioned above though.
That will only work if your core drivers ... IDE, ACPI, etc. are the same on both machines. What you're likely to end up with is a guided tour of driver hell trying to do it this way.

Can you not set up an install on a flash drive and install it properly on the desktop?
Will the desktop machine boot to flash?
Bigger question... does the desktop machine not have a DVD drive?
