That's one way. Initialize as GPT and format it. Use it however you please.

If you download the Windows Media Creation Tool tool, it will do everything you need.  It will partition, format and install Windows.  All you have to do is follow the on-screen instructions.  This is just one place you can get it.

Don't forget, the Tool needs to be on a bootagle USB of at least 8 gigs.

It doesn't have to be the only drive, but it does make it simpler.

Just install the new drive and disconnect the others.

Boot to bios and set boot device to  optical or USB, whatever your OS is on.

Click through prompts to fresh, new install.

Just hit install. Windows will create partitions and format.

Also if i want to delete everything inside my old HDD do i have to click delete on every partition(on the HDD) and format the main one?

Its the same as a hard drive, only faster. You can configure your storage however you please.
