How to install 2 OS's on 2 hard drives, Windows 7 and XP?

Hello,

I have a custom built computer 2 hard drives. The main hard drive 1tb is running windows 7 ultimate 64bit installed, and then I have a second hard drive 1tb I use for storage. I have some old games I want to play, but could not get to work with Win7 and will only work with windows 98/ME or XP. I don't want to buy another computer.

So I wanted to know if I could install Windows XP Pro on the second hard drive?
Do I need to partition a certain portion of the hard drive?
Is there is a way to select which OS to boot from?
Can you default it to Windows 7?


Any instructions would help or advice.

Thank you for looking at my thread!

    They tell you how to cram it all on one hard drive, your installation for XP will be on the second drive, so you get to skip a few steps in the procedure.
