If I took my internal hard drive with Fedora 20 installed on it out of my laptop, then replaced it with a new hard drive, then install Windows 10 on that hard drive. Would putting my Fedora 20 hard drive back into my laptop after I installed Windows 10 on the other one still work?

no, everything is stored on the harddrive only , unless it has a separate SSD drive , which is unlikely , they often use a combination drive for that

i have done this myself a few years ago , with XP and Windows 7 , when it was first released as a test
