Hello, my question is I wast to install Windows XP on a separate HDD, I have the install disk and cd key. I want to use this to run old games, etc. I've had problems with compatibility mode in the past, and Virtual machine looks to confusing. I figured just having the original os would work just fine. And help/advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
 
Does it really need to be XP?
If so, I don't see why not.
Install XP on your drive with no other drives attached.
You can use the bios boot option to select which os you want to run.
I do this on a laptop with a 32 bit os to run civ 2.42 on one drive or windows 10 on the other.
