When installing windows 7 on a HARDDRIVE (Western Digital 500gb 7200rpm) I am re-using from another computer, into a new build....

....I want to DELETE all the existing partiions, and then go to advanced, and FORMAT the hardrive for a FRESH install right?

Thank you for all your help.

  1. Yes, assuming you do not want any of the existing data on the HD, and want to completely start from scratch.

    Delete partitions, create a new partition, then format & install. Win 7 installer should be able to handle that for you.
  2. Oh great thank you.
