If I understand what you desire, I believe that cloning your drive to a external drive would meet your desire.
You would end up with the original and a cloned copy on a external drive.

Why does your second drive have a C partition ?

Just create another partition if you want to install windows.

Personally, I would get a solid state drive to install windows on.

First off I'm not a bro.
My name is Jack or Layback Bear.

You are not going to install Windows 7 any place without formatting as far as I know.

Your data will be fine if you don't format the drive. You will need enough space, of course.
