One way:
Have only the designated Windows drive installed
Install Windows
Disconnect the Windows drive and connect the Ubuntu drive
Install Ubuntu

On boot, F8 and choose which one to boot from

Or...

Install Windows, choosing the proper drive
Install Ubuntu, choosing the other drive
Let the Ubuntu GRUB handle the boot menu stuff

On boot, choose the proper OS to boot from

Either way will work.

And thank you.
I've dual booted in multiple ways on various machines for quite a while.
