I want to clean install Windows 7 64-bit and I have Windows XP 32-bit. I have two hard disks and someone said me one of my hard disks is system disk and another one is just plugged into my compuer. That person also said that I'll have to remove my hard disk with data in it but how to install it back without losing data in it?

Unplug the other disc.

Install Windows 7 to the system disc.

After Windows 7 is installed, reconnect the other disc.

It's up to you to know which disc is which and to disconnect the right one.
