I don't think there is any easy clean way to do it....because Windows is tied to your programs.
What I would do is one of two things.
1.) Remove/uninstall what you don't want.....and then clone....or
2.) Clone and them remove/uninstall.

"Only Windows" ? No.

Give us a rundown of all the parts involved in this.
