with my recovery disks. I have WIN8 in a 4gb flash drive, ready when I buy a touch screen monitor, but will spend $30 more to that, however, to use recovery disks required the use of or DBAN [Derrick's Boot and Nuke CD to remove a WIN7 and WIN8 install. If you have, There are two choices where a hard drive can wiped clean 1] Is securely erase the contents of your drive, the other is 2] ] Is securely erase contents or free space on a drive.
I elected the first for I have two drives, C:465GB and 74.5 (D:)
