Hello, mezen!

This TechNet Social thread has a couple solutions for you to import GPO settngs from an XML. One involves third party software though.

I guess you have somehow gotten hold of an exported GPO and try to import it in another domain? That is possible, you have to create a backup of an existing, empty GPO through GPMC and exchange the xml file against that of the one you'd like to import. Then, you can restore the backup.
