shouldn't as long as your boot order is set to boot to the new drive and not the old one.
Will having the old XP on the slave interfere with the new drive ?
as a suggestion, to reduce confusion, i would make sure to have the old drive completely removed from the system when installing the OS on the new drive. that way you don't end up with a weird dual boot scenario on accident
yes you should. it's much easier to do during initial setup than after everything is in place. also, this way you'll be able to do a dual boot with windows and linux a lot easier
Also I am planning to switch to linux mint should I put an empty partition on the new drive ready for linux?
