OK so doing a dual boot wont disregard my cache which is important for low latency recording/editing
I'm not sure I fully understand your issue here (ie. my lack of understanding).

You can BIOS boot the two HDD. Booting this way I think is safer and no different to booting that disk as if it was the only disk present. You can access the other disk(s) once booted.
Wha t I want to make sure of is whats the best setup for recording and editing audio?Right now I only have windows 7 installed but I want to be able to use both windows and linux audio programs.
