If you have the disk and do a clean install,yes.
Make sure you have all the Vista drivers for your laptop ready. I would download them to a flash drive or external drive or copy to CD.
Make sure you have the COA number so you can activate Vista.

My only question would be 'why would you want to?' (assuming XP is there at the moment).

Only work if a Vista RETAIL disk and not an OEM Vista that is tied to the Desktop pc
