Hi every one, I just need to know if adding another HDD will require re-activation (using another liocense key) upon reinstallation, thanks.

If you are going to dual boot XP, you need to ask ahead of time and attach a picture of your Disk Management window. If you have the System Reserve partition, XP has some problems installing after Win 7.

If you have the System Reserved Partition and are going to use a second hard drive, I would suggest you set that drive to primary so the install will not be interferred with.

After you finish the independent install of XP, you can set the Win 7 back to primary and use EasyBCD 2.0 beta to setup the dual boot.
