Yes it is possible and personally I think it is the best configuration. I would set ubuntu as primary hard drive and windows as the secondary hard drive. This way you will not over-write windows mbr with grub. When you boot you machine this way, you will get a grub menu with both ubuntu and windows as an option. If for some reason your ubuntu drive fails, you will still be able to boot windows.

Can you help with this problem?
