Is it possible to set up Windows 7 on one hdd and Mac on my 2nd hdd?
They are both 1TB each so i have plenty of room, i have tried looking online to see if its possible but everytime i search for "dual boot 2 hdd" i only see people asking about win xp / win xxx

Thanks in advance

Yes, it is possible. Assuming that you're using a Mac, just get BootCamp and put in your Windows 7 DVD. I don't actually know how the process works since I don't have a Mac, but I'm sure searching "BootCamp Windows 7" or something on Google will help you out.

If you're using a non-Mac computer, then you could be in for some trouble. Installing Windows 7 is easy, but installing the hacked Mac OS (or Hackintosh) could give you a rough time. You might want to go to a forum dedicated to Hackintosh for help with that. Needless to say, this isn't for the weak-hearted.
