Nuked my HDD. Now need to re-install windows


New Member
So I have sold my PC and wanted to wipe the HDD clean in such that recovery tools would not recover my data if the buyer decided to try:ohno:.

I decided to choose DBAN as my nuking tool:noise: I did not realize that DBAN would completely wipe the OS as well :hide:

I was told to just download a windows OS and burn to a CD then boot my PC from DVD/CD in the BIOS and viola:teeth::teeth::teeth:.

Is it actually this simple?:andwhat:
