When setting up a second profile in a Dual Boot system in W7 is it necessary to install things like graphics drivers in the second profile since they're already installed in the original boot system?
I know that aps need to be installed for each profile, but I don't know what sort of things are global in nature.

Yes, you'll have to install all necessary drivers. Dual boot is two completely separate operating systems. You can share files, folders, drives, partitions, etc that are common on the machine, but the operatings systems are entirely separate.
If you mean setting up another user account, that's not Dual Boot. You don't need to install anything to setup another user account.
