A fresh start with a new hard drive

I want to make a fresh start with a new hard drive, and:-

1) Finish my present task in 2009 SP3 with OpenGL enabled, and
2) Start new tasks in 2008 SP3 which has superior operability on the system summarised below, and
3) Buy a new version of SW in a few years time.

Can you suggest how I can run multiple versions which all have the same name (solidworks.exe) and write stuff to the one Windows registry?

Will reinstalling Windows knock out Solidwork's application data in Windows folders, and can Solidworks recover?
