that's currently registered on a desktop, can I use the disc to initiate the Windows installation on a newly built PC, and then use the key on my laptop to validate it?

Long story short, I sold my old PC to my brother which came with a copy of Windows 7 that I installed on it so it's registered to the desktop. I still have the disc for it and I have a laptop with a key underneath that I'm wondering if I can use so I don't have to buy a new copy.

Not without calling MS to do a phone activation of the key. It will come up as being registered on another computer.
