if theres nothing important on the hard drive id say just format it then rebuild your mbr for the ssd os (assuming youre meaning a dual boot setup)

 

*(thats just me and i tend to make things more complicated for myself than i need to)*

Nothing so simple of course!!!! It won't let me format the hard drive.Even deleting Windows Old does'nt work,I'll keep on trying even if it means physically removing the hard drive!!Thanks Chas.

You can go into disk mangement from your primary OS and delete each volume if you have both a System Reserved & OS partitions, leaving any further partitions, then do what you wish with that unallocated space. Even install another OS on it. W7 & above LIKES to be installed on unallocated space OR format/create new storage partition(s).

This is something that I often do since I move my OSes back and forth between my SSD & HDD. Too often.   :histerija:

Thanks BTW. Your help request motivated me to restore my W7 Ult x64 back to my HDD (2nd OS drive) and get it updated.

 

I used Disk Management to delete both the W8.1s System Reserved & OS partitions from my W10 on SSD installation and restored W7 from image to the unallocated space with Paragon HDM. A very normal procedure for me.
