How to dual boot Two separate harddrives, 2 separate operating systems

I have got two separate hard drives one running Windows 7 one running xp. I need to be able to chose which os to run but currently I can only do so by pressing F12. I have tried EasyBCD but it wont work - does anyone know how I can do this?
To clarify what I really want is a list of the two os to come up at startup so I can choose

Step by step instructions would be ideal!

Hello Tbagz, welcome to Seven Forums!


Most prefer a BIOS managed dual-boot but if you prefer a Windows managed dual-boot, so you can get the correct advice, please post a snip of a maximized Windows 7 disk management so we can advise from there.
