That's because bootloader is not installed on 2nd hard, its installed on first. Yes, it can be installed on 2nd hard disk, but lets focus on a different problem :
I am sure that you installed XP on 2nd hard disk when 1st hard disk was connected. The hard disks probably had partitions labeled C: and D: (maybe different, but lets assume). So the path for files and services and programs in Windows installed on D: is D:\ based. When you remove 1st hard disk, 2nd hard is seen as C:\ And even if you install the XP bootloader, you would be in the middle of a mess because of the change in path.
So you are stuck with both hard disks connected.
