bad things would happen, I would just bite the bullet and reinstall all the old programs that need reinstalling, it's much less of a headache than if you muck up the Windows install by accident and have to start over yet again, old data files should be able to be transferred as usual, right click, copy, then paste to the folder you want it on the corresponding new Windows folder, if it's a bunch of documents or pictures just left click one time on the file to highlight it and then hold down the shift key while moving the arrow key to include all the files you want, once all are highlighted, do the same as with a single file, right click, copy, etc...
