If you want to keep the WIn7 installation on the SSD, you can mark it Active then with the other HD unplugged boot the Win7 DVD to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times to write the boot files to the SSD Win7 which were placed on XP Active partition since it was not unplugged during install.
This method will allow you to boot the HD's independently via the BIOS, which keeps each free to come and go as you please. Set SSD first to boot after DVD, then boot the SATA Win7 using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first screen when you boot.
