    The Windows 7 disk will work and allow you to install Windows 7, however without a unique Windows 7 serial number for your Dell it will only work for about 30 days.

    Windows 7 serial numbers are activated over the Internet, so you will be unable to use the same serial number on two computers.

    Yes you can install, but as mentioned in previous post it will work only for 30 days, so you have to purchase your own copy of windows 7 from Microsoft.
