1. Create a recovery drive. If you want to reformat the hard drive on which Windows is installed, you'll need to do so from outside of the operating system. To do this, you'll need to boot from a recovery disk. The easiest way to make a recovery disk is to use a USB flash drive, but you can burn a recovery DVD if you prefer that method. Insert a blank USB flash drive that's 16 GB or larger. If there's any data on the drive already, you'll want to back it up—it will be deleted during the creation process. In the Windows search bar, type recovery, and click Create a recovery drive in the search results. Check the box next to "Back up system files to the recovery drive" and click Next. Select your USB flash drive and click Next. Click Create. Leave the USB drive in the port, as you'll need to boot from it in a few minutes.
2. Back up any files you want to keep. Since formatting your hard drive will erase all of the data that's on it, you'll want to make a backup of your important data before you continue.
3. Set your PC to boot from the USB drive. If you already know that your PC can boot from a USB drive, you can skip this step. Otherwise, follow these steps to ensure that your computer can boot from USB: Open the Windows Start menu and click Settings (the gear). Click Update & Security. Click the Recovery tab on the left. Click Restart now under "Advanced" in the right tab. Go to Troubleshoot > Advanced options > UEFI Firmware Settings > Restart. When the PC reboots, you'll be in the BIOS/UEFI. Now you'll need to go to the section called Boot, Boot Order, or Startup. This area looks different depending on your model of PC, so you may have to do some poking around to find it. When you find the right section, you should see a list of devices your PC can boot from—optical drive, USB drive, hard drive, etc. Make the USB drive the first option in the boot order. If you don't see "USB drive," the option may be called "Removable Media." The steps to make it first in the boot order also vary by
4. Boot from the USB drive. If you just made changes in the BIOS/UEFI, your computer should automatically reboot from the drive. Select Boot from disk when prompted to continue. If you didn't make changes in the BIOS/UEFI, restart your PC now (click the Start menu, click the Power option, and select Restart) and select Boot from disk when prompted.
