    I don't believe putting a Windows 7 Pro Product key into the Windows 10 installer will work.
    You'd have to clean install Windows 7 Pro and activate it using the Windows 7 Pro key you have then do an upgrade to Windows 10 - once Windows 10 is activated your hardware hash is remembered by Microsoft.
    This means you wouldn't have to install 7 then upgrade to 10 again if you wanted to wipe, you'd just install Windows 10 and Microsoft Activation would detect that your machine's hardware hash matched and activate.
