Windows 7: windows live usb?

windows live usb?

i'm currently running installed ubuntu from my external hdd that i use for backups as my drive in my laptop died due to rough handling by a relative im looking into getting the seagate 500gb hybrid drive as a replacement to the manufacturer provided one. Frankly, i dont want to use my external hdd in this way because i think it might shorten its life.

i would like to know if there is a way to run windows 7 as a live os, i have done some research and the answer seems to be no. if not i am aware of windows 8's "windows to go" feature. i do not have access to a enterprise machine and am not sure if i can install w8 enterprise on my wd my passport without reformatting it (idk if its ntfs or some other format). i would even be happy with running xp at this point. i just am having some issues with finding linux equivalents to some softwares that i use frequently (greenshot, getting my logitech b910 to work, feeling like a fish out of water in linux)

im aware that this is a windows forum so i wont go to much into my issues with ubuntu. i just would like to know what is my best bet for windows that i can run from a wd my passport without erasing my backups.

i'm trying wine now, it seems that bluestacks doesnt work with wine. i was aware of vm's before this though. i guess its my best option now to run native but its slightly taxing on my system since it is a laptop and my hdd is having to go through a usb 2.0 connection
