Format Hard Drive

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 10 Notbook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Product No. J6M85PA#ABG.  I'm attempting to format the hard drive to remove all data. Tried using KillDisk but cannot be used on this system. How can I format the hard drive, with a vision of reinstalling a Windows O/S later.

You simply do a CLEAN install Windows 10 over the top and it will format HDD for you.

 

Regards.
