How do I disable formating of any drive in Windows 7 using Registry Editor only?

I want to disable format option by only modifying the Registry only.

Is that possible? If yes, how?

It is possible to remove the Format drive option from the context menu. I don't know the details.
As for preventing a drive from being formatted, I am quite sure that is not possible.
Can you elaborate on exactly what you are trying to do?
