If you use 2 seperate HDD, then it wont be called as a dual boot. Based on your BIOS settings, your pc will boot using the 1st boot device.

yes but install windows xp 1st so that after installing 7, the windows boot loader can identify an backward compatible OS(xp) lying somewhere in the computer.
