The method will work for XP as well as Windows7, and should work for a CD instead of a USB stick, however I'm not sure if the Dell recovery CD specifically will work as I've never used an OEM recovery CD to install Windows. If its no different than a normal XP install CD than it should work just the same, but Dell might have done weird things to the recovery CD, such as pre-programing it to wipe all the partitions, fiddle with the MBR, etc.

Feel free to give it a try and report back for science.
