Try it. Use free Partition Wizard to shrink XP to make unallocated space.

Boot the Win7 DVD, use Custom Drive Tools to create New and then format partition, try install. See if it will take the key.

These Upgrade Kits are supposed to have the keys tied to the S/N of the intended machine, so don't get your hopes up too high. Several have reported they work on other machines, though
