Yeah, booting of operating system requires its own boot code which is in primary master's primary partition.
So just copying contents of C-drive wouldn't be enough. You would have to to use those tools made for that operation.
And taking of cables won't destroy content of HD, it's nonvolatile memory so it survives without power.
But just remember to shutdown PC totally before taking of cables.
So you have only two "slots" for HDs?
I wouldn't recommend keeping HDs "side by side" without any space between them. Current HDs generate so much heat that if you just put other
directly above another it will very propably shorten "life" of them. At least there should be fan cooling them.
I myself have three HDs with space between them and fans cooling them so they feel only little warm when touched.
(and with other drives drive letters are running all way to N)
PS. Did you know that this case
can feel little cramped?
