See this tutorial for how to setup a dual boot environment with Windows 7 and XP. It covers both methods, XP installed first or Windows 7 installed first.

If you installed each OS with the other HD unplugged, then you can boot the preferred OS by setting it's HD first to boot in BIOS setup.

Boot the other OS when needed by using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key for your mobo.

This keeps the HD's independent to come and go as you please, instead of interlocking them requiring major surgery.

If this is not to your liking, boot Win7 to install EasyBCD 2.1, add XP to Dual Boot Menu.
