  1. Best answer
    Do you have a Windows install DVD to boot off of? If so it is pretty easy to format or delete the partition using the "install windows" GUI. Or just buy a new copy of Win10 and do the same thing (that is smarter than upgrading from 7 to 10 anyway)

    The best OS to use for "hacking" or programming is a 'nix OS, Unix or whatever flavor of Linux you want.
  2. Obtain whatever OS you wish to install. Windows with your current license key, or Linux...
    Disconnect all other drives
    Boot from your install media and wipe out all the partitions on that drive.
    Install the OS.
  3. As long as you leave your data drive/partition alone, any data you have there will not be affected by whatever you do to your C: drive. Any programs that you installed onto your data drive/partition will need to be re-installed.

  4. Disconnect all other drives. It will prevent issues down the road.
