In general, the core API set of Windows 7 and Win2K8(R2) are supposed to be near identical. (Vista and the original Win2k8 are supposed to be the same as well...). Win XP could have some missing parts like PowerShell missing by the default. But basic discovery should work.

BTW, Here you can find how to install PowerShell to WinXp boxes.

Hope  this helps.

It's better to use inventory discovery for workstation discovery. It's agent based discovery available in  UCMDB 10.X.

Thanks Dima, I understand that the preferred method is using the UD Agent. But from a technical point of view:

Is it possible to use the same method as for win 2008 servers ? (I'm not a Windows Guy ...)
