Disconnect the Win8 drive.
Install XP on the other.

Choose which drive to use at boot time.

XP probably won't work on your new machine (no drivers), but even if it did it is hitting end of life in a few months (no more updates or security patches). You can tweak 8 to look like 7 or even XP if that is what you want. Look at Classic Shell as one example, or just wait for 8.1 to come in a few months.
