I'm currently running a 120gb ssd and a 500gb hdd. However, both drives have windows on them. When I try to delete the copy of windows on the hdd it says I need permission even though im deleting it as an admin. I've tried a few guides online but haven't had any luck? Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, how did you fix it?

1st make sure you are booting from the SSD and its the active partition.

then depend how your disk is partitioned, if you got enough room to back up all of your data to other partition, you could just reformat the partition, its the quickest and cleanest.
