  1. How do I format an HDD on my laptop if I have another OS installed on it?


    Hey guys, I have a laptop with an SSD and an HDD. Windows 10 is installed on my SSD while I have Linux installed on my HDD. I would like to format the HDD to make it usable for extra storage because my SSD is almost full but I'm not quite sure how to do that. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    One of the steps, it says this:

    1. Boot your computer with your old Hard Disk Drive (HDD)

    How can I boot my PC with the HDD when no OS is on it. I got my OS on my 2 SSD's. You need to have an OS installed it says to complete the firmware update.

    How do I format an HDD on my laptop if I have another OS installed on it?

    Installing 2 OSes in the same HDD

    How do you install another OS on the same HDD? Do I just create another Partition and install the new OS in it? If so, how do I switch between the 2 OSes?
