    Default Need help re-installing Windows.

    Hey guys,

    So I experienced problems with my booting up around a month ago. While I was updating my chipset drivers, I had a brownout and my PC screwed up, with Windows corrupted on my SSD and me being unable to access BIOS.
    When I booted up, it directs me to the Windows Diagnoses options l and after trying all of them I still can't boot.
    I cannot even access BIOS on my MB anymore so I can't change any settings in BIOS.

    After using a laptop for a while, I got a new parts but I was wondering if I could still use my old SSD (I think the problem was the MB as I couldn't access BIOS anymore).
    I was wondering how can I clear Windows from my SSD and do a fresh install? If I boot off USB whilst the SSD is connected, won't the OS in the SSD override the USB boot, going back to diagnosis recovery? Or could I plug in a USB and boot off that first, connect the SSD at the partition window then refresh so Windows can detect it and then delete the old partition there?

    What can I do here?
    TLDR: Corrupted Windows installed on old SSD. How can I wipe and reinstall windows on it. Only have a laptop and USB bootdrive at my disposal

    Thanks in advance.

    The SSD should be ok - if you set primary boot method in the bios to the USB you should be able to start a new install of windows and get it to wipe the SSD and create a new partition.

    Going back under my rock now - the light - she burnssss :}
    Kondrakin : No point being frustrated when all the great knowledgeable folks here can help - and they work cheap :}
    Havsco : Are you calling me a whore? Oh wait....
