You'll need to ensure you have created new Win 10 install media first and then go into Disk Management.

You would normally right click on the disk you want to format but on mine the Format option is greyed out.

If that works for you, ensure you check the option for a Quick Format.

I think the clean install would format it anyway,

This is a tutorial in how to perform a clean install of Win 10.

Note what it tells you should you be using an UEFI Bios.

Hi Tom,

First of all, for an inexplicable reason, the BSOD's have stopped.  So, I am in a holding pattern for now (at worst).

I have been thinking about the windows 10 conversion. Since I am considering a clean install and a wiped 250Gb SSD, I was thinlking about the necessity for 2 physical upgades first. Upgrading the SSD to 500Gb and upgrading the processor. Right now I have the Intel Core i5 4670K in a 1150 LGA socket. I understand that newer i5's are much better than the early ones. Can I (and should I) have this i5 replaced using the same mobo/socket?

Thanks, Larry

I'm not into hardware having only ever used laptops.

You may be able to get some advice on that from your computer manufacturer's support or they may have a forum where you could ask that question.

Did the BSODs stop as an effect of a clean boot ?

It may be best to upgrade your hardware before installing Win 10 as it takes a "fingerprint" of the mobo and any change afterwards could entail a phone call to MS to have your product key reactivated.
