Basically, I'm getting a new Computer and want to put the hard drive and ssd from the old one into the new one, but i'm worried that the SSD with windows will effect the new one one way or another.

What will actually happen?

Assuming the boot order is correct, and it boots from the drive the system came with, nothing bad will happen.

You can wipe this SSD clean, and use it for whatever.
Is there anything on this drive you wish to access?
