Can I run Windows XP on one hard drive, Windows 7 on another?

There is no big hurry to get this answered. I'm just curious. Could a person, having 2 Hard drives on his computer Run Windows 7 on one and XP on the other. Or any combination of 2?
Is 2 the maximum amount of hard drives you can have on one computer? CB

Yeah, you could set up a dual boot with a different OS on each hard drive.

Also, the number of hard drives you can have is dictated by the number of SATA connectors (assuming you are using a SATA hard drive; also make sure know which ones are SATA3 and which ones are SATA2) on your motherboard, as well as the number of SATA power connectors your power supply has, and of course the space in your tower case.

Hope it's not wrong of me to ask questions, just because I'm curious, and not because I have an actual problem CB
