It may be possible to install XP on a separate partition or drive but there are going to be some problems. One of these will be the availability of XP drivers for your laptop. Laptops often use proprietary hardware so these will be obtainable only from the manufacturer. Check with the computer manufacturer to see if XP is supported. If not, you should abandon the idea.

Why do you want to do this?
There are usually better options to solve application incompatibility. These include compatibility mode, XP mode (if available for your edition of Windows 7), or installing XP on Virtual PC or VirtualBox.

Another porblem is that the XP disk won't recognize your SATA hard drive.

I would leave the windows 7 and install a free virtual machine.

XP over 7 is going to hose the 7 bootloader. XP doesn't like to be on second drives, either, though there are ways around it. I currently have XP on a sata drive, and there is zero problem with that. If I were to try this, I would back up the 7 mbr and system partition first.

I have a Camcorder that isn't Windows 7 compatible and I installed XP on Virtual PC and it still didn't work. I read somewhere that for the Virtual machine to see your device it first needs to be seen by the host machine. I will try the XP on another drive route to see if that works.
