Windows 8 pro clean install help needed

I am trying to clean install on a new ssd windows 8 pro i upgraded to pro however and i only have the windows 8 recover disc how can i clean in stall on my new ssd ? please post as detailed steps as possible



You might try reinstalling your preinstalled software onto the SSD with your RECOVERY DISKS if you have burned them... If not, it would be a good idea to try to do it now...


They probably won't install to the SSD though because it is smaller than what the process will be looking for...


Best bet would be to reinstall your preinstalled software on the original hard drive, and then make an image of it with an imaging program of some kind (with a bootable CD), and then reload the image to the SSD...


Then do the upgrade to Win 8 again...

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
