I would like to install it on another laptop I have using the OS disk I have, but it has only one key, Will it work? Can I buy another key?

Yes, you can buy another key HOWEVER I found that to be no bargain. What's on the other laptop? If it's some version of 7 the Anytime upgrade might be the cheapest.

And to answer the other part

And to answer the other part, no, it will not work. Even if it did, it would be an unlicensed install, i.e. pirated. I think Bob pretty much covered the rest.
