Hi:

 

Notebooks that come from the factory with dual drive configurations have no operating system on the 2.5" drive.

 

The first thing to do is to temporarily disconnect the 2.5" drive and make sure the notebook automatically boots from the SSD.

 

If it does, you will need to remove the OS from the 2.5" drive, or the notebook will automatically want to boot from that drive first.

 

Connect the hard drive back up, and then you can remove Windows by making a bootable USB installation flash drive with the media creation tool from the link below.

 

Download Windows 10 (microsoft.com)

 

Boot from the installation media and you can clean the disk with Diskpart.

 

Watch this video for how to do that from the installation media...Skip about the first 4:40 minutes and just follow the instructions from when he boots from the Windows installation media.

 

Use of Diskpart to Format Clean or Wipe Clean All Partitions on a Drive Before Windows Installation ...

 

Then you can either create and format a new partition with the media creation tool, or use the Windows disk management utility to do that.

 

When you use dispart, make sure you select the right disk to clean!

 

You want to make sure you select the 1 TB drive, and as long as your NVMe SSD is not 1 TB as well, that should be easy to determine what disk you need to clean.
