  3. To be safe unplug the secondary drive curing install.
    After everything is working, plug it back in.
    That way you don't accidently erase the wrong HD.

    No. After a clean install, you will find your old documents and settings in
    the windows.old folder. Still, it is highly recommended to do a backup.
