If you take the plunge, just remove the old system drive and set it aside. Do all your new OS and software install on a fresh drive. If anything goes bad, you can slap the old drive in and get work done. And after a month of smooth sailing, I would think about cloning over the old drive so you have a backup of the new setup.
