    You can connect your laptop hard drive to your desktop computer but you cannot boot from your laptop hard drive. Well, you COULD but it won't wrok because of the differences in hardware on both machines.

    You will need a device though: http://www.startech.com/Product/Item...d=IDE4044&c=US

    That will allow you to attach your laptop hard drive to your desktop internally.

    or something like this: http://www.startech.com/Product/Item...IDE2510U2&c=US

    That will make your laptop hard drive into a USB hard drive.
