    Fresh Windows Install on SSD, while formatting HDD

    I am going to upgrade my laptop with an SSD, and I would like to make a new-fresh install of Windows in there, while deleting everything from my HDD, which I am going to use to store data. So, I've been reading on the internet, and what I want to do seems
    pretty dificult, as most people can't format the HDD after installing Windows on the SSD. What's the best way of making a clean install on the SSD while deleting everything on the HDD?

    Thanks in advance.

    PD: I'll do the install in like a month, I made this post so I would have everything clear at the moment of the installation.

    Fresh Windows Install on SSD, while formatting HDD

    Hi JSansoP

    Here is a successful method to do that:

    Do not insert the SSD just yet

    Connect the bootable installation media and boot your laptop from that

    At the start of the installation process, there is a Windows with 2 buttons, choose the bottom button (Custom: Install Windows only)

    On the next screen select each partition on your HDD and click Delete

    When you have only Unallocated Space on that drive, press and hold the Power button on your PC for 5 - 10 seconds to perform a shut down)

    Now, disconnect the HDD and connect the SSD drive

    Install Windows 10 on the SSD drive

    When that completes, shut down your laptop and reconnect the HDD, so both drives are connected

    Open Disk Management (Accessible by right clicking your Start Button)

    Right click the unallocated space on that HDD and choose New - Simple Volume and accept the defaults

    That's It, Windows 10 will be installed and you will have a fresh HDD for your data . ..
