Yes. Install the hard-drive, and use Windows XP to "partition" and "format" the second disk-drive.
When installing Windows 7, be sure to "point" the installer to the drive-letter of the second disk-drive.
Windows 7 will create a "dual-boot" environment.

You may have problems with drivers. Hardware is designed and intended for specific Operating Systems. You can chat with the boys at HP and ask them.

umm xp used a completely different kind of hard drive and may not be compatible with the windows 7 environment I gather you might be trying to import the old data from that xp drive and use it on the new machine, correct? what is model number of new computer if this in fact is the case.

Testimonial: "While my solution was sort of self discovered, another voice in my head helped me think harder. I appreciated the efforts very much."
Sounds like you may have purchased a "Windows 7 upgrade" (whatever version Home/Pro,) version....
now that win7 is on it, you can boot from the CD, choose the "repair my computer" option, then choose the Advanced Startup repair options....and you can use the command window to re-format, or delete the partition and and re-format the drive....then start-over with a clean disk.
article to read on getting it to 'authenticate' if you DID buy Upgrade media and you want to do a clean install, (normally it won't without some tweaking.)
