    Clone Windows to its own device, I would use an SSD, and you can clone Windows nicely with Paragon HDM 15

    Then just pull your OS X drive.

    I never like sharing a drive with two OS's and OS X with new version can mess the partition numbers, harder to support.

    I wouldn't recommend you delete OS X as you may need it occasionally for firmware updates and stuff like that, and it also serves a good spare OS. Unless you are running out of space, I suggest you leave it in a small partition (30Gb is fine).

    But it looks like you already deleted so nevermind.
