Yes, that's possible. Just make sure, after plugging in the older HDD, that you still boot from the newer hard drive, otherwise you might boot into the older windows installation. Once you have booted from the new HDD, Windows will detect the older HDD and then you can easily format any partitions or the whole disk using Disk Management.

So all I need to do is to boot from my main hdd and then format the hdd I’ve just installed?
