Just leave everything on the 1.5TB, pull it out (yes yes...I know, thats what she said), put the other two in (oh god...thats what she said? D: LOL ), install OS, etc. Then plug the 1.5 TB back in and pull what you want off of it. Then you can reformat it or pull it back out or w/e you plan to do.

You could try using Windows backup just make an image of your current setup and then boot from the Windows 7 dvd and restore it.
