Smile Dual Boot: Two W7 OS's on separate drives?

Ok. I've been using W7 ultimate 64 on my internet drive and like it so much i'm gonna install it on my studio drive. Currently I have W7 on one drive and XP Pro on the other in a dual boot configuration.

Will it be as easy as just inserting the W7 DVD and doing a clean install on the XP Pro hard drive? And if thats the case will the dual boot configuration configure itself?

Lenovo ThinkPad T410 - i7 620M - 8GB RAM - Crucial M4 120GB SSD - 250GB 2nd drive - Intel HD 3000 GPU - 1440x900 - Windows 7/8

Default Re: Dual Boot: Two W7 OS's on separate drives?

It will be as easy as inserting the disk to do a clean installl. Also, Win7 can install on the drive without a format if you want to retain some of the programs' features and settings (Obviously you'll have to reinstall the app, but then you can copy the folder over top of the newly installed program). The boot loader should configure itself, but if it does not you can just use EasyBCD to setup the bootloader.
