Default Hard Drive Swap

Hey all. I have an 80gb hdd that i would like to install into another computer. The only problem is how do I wipe it clean before the install? It doesn't need to have anything on it. Thanks in advance!

Default Re: Hard Drive Swap

You can use any number of programs such as DBAN or Kill Disk.

The simplest way would be to just install the drive in the new comp, boot to the OS installation CD, and run through the install process to format the drive.
