    Interesting experiment. I don't think anyone has asked something similar on this forum.

    Are you more than guessing that you'll be able to boot off that enclosure via a USB port?

    If it is seen as unallocated space in Disk Management, you should be able to format it right there. Select that space and look at the "action" menu.

    No. You could, but you don't have to.

    You instead would use a "boot menu" to choose the USB drive as the boot device when you want to boot from it.

    You would access the boot menu by pressing a...

    I assumed you were referring to an OEM partition placed there by Lenovo since you have a new laptop. A Windows clean install can also create partitions designated "OEM". I've got 2 of them: 450 and...

    Not sure I'm following you.

    The reason to do the separation has little to do with viruses.

    Keeping everything on C would not insulate you from a virus.

    Socket 1159, up to 10 cores, in 2020

    If you choose to believe this leaked roadmap.

    The noise you hear is the moaning about Intel changing sockets after you just spent all that money on a high end 1151 CPU.

    OK.

    Everything (ALL partitions) on the OS drive totals about 465. An image of all of that would occupy roughly 200 to 250 GB.
