What do you describe, even if possible, it would be quite difficult to maintain.

Alternatively, if you want to experiment with Windows 7, have virtual machine installed on your laptop.

Or get another hard disk, swap it with original XP hd and install Windows 7 on it.

For backups, the best is to use external, 2.5" USB/eSATA drive.

yeah - no, that's not going to work out very well for you. Best to get your IT department to help you out here, it's not something you're going to be able to do successfully on you own.

I would advice you strongly to separate your company asset and tool as their PC, from your personal property.

Get yourself a separate laptop, they are cheap nowadays.
