That is the problem...you need to rerun the wizard form the desktop as that will be the main computer. Make the disc(k) and then use it to run on the laptop.
The disc will make sure all settings are correct and that no conflicts are causing any errors.
Remeber that the names of the computer have to be different and they have to be the same workgroup.
