looking to install Windows 7 on other hard drive

I'm looking to install Windows 7 on another hard drive. What is the easiest way to reconfigure Gurb to see Windows 7 on the other hard drive? Also when I install Windows 7 should I unplug the hard drive with linux mint and gurb on it?

Thanks, Aaron Leishman

Is it possible to install both KDE and Gnome?

Is it possible to install both KDE and Gnome? I had Red Hat on a Laptop 5 years ago which gave me the option of logging into gnome or Kde on the log-in screen.

If this is possible what would be the best process?
