I got a windows 7 on a second disk.
I'm NOT using UEFI.

plug off the first disk running Fedora.
IIRC windows boot loader lands otherwise on the first disk (/dev/sda)
Install Windows on the second.
Plug in the first disk and boot Fedora
then run:
sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

the next boot, windows will appear in grub's boot menu

I'm then also able to boot windows as VM via Vbox
for that VM running windows from the raw disk I do:
sudo VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename ./Win7_RAW.vmdk 
-rawdisk /dev/sdb -partitions 1,2 -relative
in the Vbox config menu regarding disk I point to Win7_RAW.vmdk

disk -l /dev/sdb:
Device     Boot    Start      End  Sectors  Size Id Type
/dev/sdb1  *        2048   206847   204800  100M  7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sdb2         206848 40962047 40755200 19,4G  7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
