Right next to me is a hard drive that I took out of my old, broken HP shitline. I am wondering how do I clear my hard drive completely, the OS and everything so I can use it as a spare drive for my current built PC.

What programs should I use to clear this hard drive?

Do I need to partition the hard drive?

DBAN. Or you could just format it once it's installed your computer.

Windows disk manager will work OK. Install it into a sata slot in your comp and format it with windows.
