For each copy of XP you have you are allowed to install it on only one PC, from what you are saying I think you are trying to connect your PC to your laptop and copy windows across. Apart from the fact that you are not meant to do this as its a breach of the licencing conditions it won't work anyway.
The reason being when you try to copy across windows some of the files are in use as windows will be running on the PC plus some of the drivers will not be there.
The only way to do it is to install from a windows CD.
