Old pc, invested with stds.

I recently found back an old pc I used to have. It had several pics on it but I could not properly start it since for some reason no mice or keyboard I had could work on it. I had the brilliant idea to pop the std-ridden thing in my new pc only to find it has many viruses on it according to windows defender. I took the thing out but windows still mentions several viruses it could not remove (probably because they are on the hdd I popped out again). It now found no threats but still has an x on it saying that there are actions to be undertaken. Alureon.A is what it found. How fucked am I? I am now just cleaning the whole drive but what could the risk be?
