I have to reinstall everything.

Can i simply format my HDD`S to delete everything and start with W10 Setup?

Mike

Yes you can.
Win10 serial is stored in bios.
During install just ignore requests to enter Win10 serial number.

Yes sure.
Apparently it is best to remove it via the Wndows Disk Cleanup utility.
Click the "Clean up System Files" button on the third window that comes up
and check the 'Previous Windows installation" box before running.
