1. Add another HDD(s) or use existing free space to Install CentOS.
2. Copy data from NTFS (you can use ntfs-3g package) to ext4/LVM 
partition on new HDD
3. Install tomcat on CentOS and configure it to match tomcat on Windows 
4. Run tests on one OS then reboot and run same tests on another. In 
this setup you can even run realtime tests on Linux in off-hours.
