  • If you have your data on a separate disk, I recommend disconnecting it. After doing a clean install of Windows 8.1 on your SSD, when you reconnect your HDD, you may need to import it. Also you will likely need to take ownership of all the files as they will have been owned by the account on your old OS.

  • You can do a custom install (including formatting) when you go to install the new version of windows.
