Probably a simple one for you all but...
I installed a new Samsung 500gb Evo SSD in my PC. (ASUS H170 Pro/i5/16gb ram/Asus 1060 video card/1TB WD blue/Samsung 500gb evo).
Samsung's instructions initializes the disk and installs their cloning software.
Their procedure starts with an external Sata to USB cable, then you install the SSD in the PC with a sata to sata (SSD to motherboard).
I'd like to skip that first step and I don't want to clone the old drive.
Would like to format the disk then do a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro on the SSD.
The BIOS see's the SSD and it shows up in disk manager but it's not formatted.
When I right click to format (in disk manager), the only options are to format in UDF (UDF 2.01 is highlighted automatically).
I'm not familiar with UDF and thought I'd be formatting in NTFS.
Also, NTFS is not an option in the drop down file system menu,
Options are UDF 1.50, 2.00, 2.01, and 2.50.
Looking for recommendations on what to do?
