Hi,

Looking to install my OS in a new computer but should i format my hard drive while it's in my old pc or wait and install and format it then in my new pc?

Thanks

If its going to be more than a day or so I would go ahead and install and format it now and start testing it by running error checking on it with both options enabled everyday twice a day. Any issues then send it back
