I have an illegal copy of Win8 downloaded onto my SSD. I did NOT download it myself, I bought it from my friend for $80 and it came with it. I bought a legal copy of Win8 OEM on Newegg, and Im just wondering if it will erase the old Win8 when it downloads to my laptop. If it doesn't, what can I do to erase the SSD? Secure Erase? Software Recommendations? And this is probably an easy question for someone out there, but whoever replies I really appreciate it.

Throw your Windows 8 disc in, start the installation process, and delete any existing partitions when you get to that point. You won't have to worry about anything then.
