Two Operating Systems, Two Hard Drives?

I currently have a pc with one hardrive and windows xp installed. I have a free copy of Windows 7 from my school that I would like to install on a new hardrive that I will ad to the system. (1) Is it possible to do this without affecting the programs I currently have installed on my original hardrive? (2) Would I have a choice to boot from either drive? (ie. the original xp drive or my new win 7 drive?)

Thanks a ton.

  1. 1) Yes
    2) Yes

    Providing that the older operating system is installed first then you will be able to install Windows 7 on a second partition or drive. You will then be given a boot menu to chose which operating system you want.
