I have an Intel SSD with Win XP OS - Service Pack 3 and am looking for advice to upgrade OS to Win 8.0. I have 2nd hard drive with data, and am not familiar enough with "cleaning" the SSD to accept the new OS. any help is greatly appreciated.

just boot computer to the boot menu,select dvd as first boot device,insert your install disk and hit enter.there will be an option to format the drive before install.do a clean or custom install as that will format your drive and install a fresh copy of windows.

And if I only have download WIN8 set-up exe file, RUN program after saving files from SSD, and this *exe file will reformat drive and complete a clean install? The WIN8 set-up file was downloaded from Microsoft Store. Thanx
