No it will be completely fine. Nothing will get formatted
But it can get formatted if your harddrive has GPT and the other has MBR
Check this first
 
Nothing will happen to your windows 10 files unless you do something to them or the old disk has some virus or something.
But chances are that the windows 7 disk will not boot into windows on a system with different hardware because of drivers and you will also loose your license and will have to renew it.
