Connect one drive, install Snow Leopard

Connect seccond drive, disconnect first drive install windows

Connect both drives use snow leopard as boot drive

boot to os using bootloader

is there a way to do this with a version of windows already installed? My computer had 1 hd with Windows 7 and tinyxp dual booting from 1 hard drive. Last night I installed osx to a partition of another hard drive. The steps in this thread dont work because I have to change a bunch of bios settings to get windows or osx to load. So from the mac partition it gets to bootloader shows both of my windows drives but if I select one it starts to load windows and then crashes and restarts. but if I switch the boot drive and change settings like the sata driver then boot windows it works fine.
