You should be able to just format the SSD from the windows install screen. You'll have to create a partition (and delete the rest, if you don't need them) and just install windows to it, it'll do the formatting

You format a storage device via the installation tool itself, it will do it for you with the "format" button.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

I went to reinstall windows today but it turns out that the SSD is formatted wrongly. How do I make it good again? 

 

Cheers!

Windows usually will happily let you reformat the drive in something it likes.

WHat version of Windows and what's the SSD format currently?

Pressed it, didn't help. Uploaded a picture of it.

If my danish serves me, it's saying you need to make the disk GTP, where the disk is currently formatted MBR. There is usually an "advanced" option on that screen where you delete the existing format, and allow Windows to reformat it as it sees fit

A solution that always works for me, at the screen from the picture remove all volumes, then just click the disk then click next.
It will automagicly fill it with the right partitions. No need to really look there anyway if you dont know what it is.

-Disclaimer dont blame me of you losing files thats what happens when you remove partitions :) -
