    I am installing a second HD in place of my DVD player in my new MBP. I would like to use this second drive 50% for Mac OS and 50% for Windows. Can I set up this configuration by partitioning the drive? When I boot in Windows will windows recognize the Win formatted partition and not the Mac portion?

    Yes, though I've heard there are some issues with BootCamp in OptiBay.
