There IS actually a way to get DX10 and DX11 running under XP. It's called using the "reference" driver that comes with the SDK. It'll work and give you full support for everything DX11 about 2FPS on a 16-core machine.

Doesn't Windows 7 already have DirectX 11? If you open the start menu and type DXDIAG and hit enter. You'll see in the window that pops up, that your running DirectX 11.
