I recently brought a new motherboard and a new 320 GB Harddisk and installed Windows 10 64 bits.
I partitioned the harddisk and installed windows 10, 64 bits in c drive
However I would now like to completely format the C drive and re-install Windows 10.
Please guide how to do this.
 
Thanks

 If you have the install DVD, just boot from it and tell it to do what you want.  If you don't have the DVD, download it from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 .

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Windows 10 should do that when you do then install.

First you boot from install medium.  Choose language, and input options.  Click install or next whatever it says.  Skip license, and accept EULA.  Choose CUSTOM.  Find your hard drive, and delete partition, and system partition.  Then click install.
