Secondly, did you create the partitions on the laptops drive to be NTFS or FAT32?

You also don't want to install the OS whilst the drive is in another machine.
It doesn't sound like theres anything wrong with the MBR except that the drive hasn't been made active.
If you go to this link & download the 'Windows XP system setup disk' - single floppy disk version, you can boot your system from it, with the drive installed, run fdisk from the floppy & just make the drive active using that.
