Surely, you can network both computers and transfer data that way.

Since it's going to be recovery CD, you should be OK.

so my disk came from dell, I still have cd drive as first to boot and it was able to read CD. However, once I got into the blue menu for reinstall or recover, both options said it could not detect a hard drive. Any thoughts?

Just reset them. I had to re-adjust boot sequence and it's now reading the cd dell provided, but it still can't seem to find the hd when I hit enter or the R button from the setup screen
