I have a gaming computer with the following specs :
- Intel i7-4770K
- Asus Z87-A
- GTX 780 (soon to be replaced by a 1060)
- 16GB DDR3
- 500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD
I've had the CPU/motherboard/GPU/RAM for about 3 years, and the SSD is a bit newer. I also got a new PSU and ordered a new GPU that's set to arrive in about a week.
Throughout that time I went through a lot of hardware change and especially software change. I've installed Windows 7 on the first SSD that I got with the computer, then installed WIndows 7 on the 500GB SSD, then installed Windows 10 when it came out, I also messed around with Linux & a Hackintosh, so my partitions are all messed up and I have half a dozen booting options, most of them obsoletes (ex: bootloaders for a Linux partition that is no longer installed).
Long story short, I'm getting a new GPU and I would like to do a clean install of Windows 10 and reset everything to as close to factory settings as I can. What is the best way to do this?
I know that in the Windows 10 installation wizard I can delete & create new partitions, but I'd also like to get rid of the obsolete booting options, do a full cleanup of the drives and partitions to make sure everything is gonna be running smoothly.
