Installing a new hard drive

Last Modified: 2018-02-21
I am installing a new hard drive in a PC which has had a failed hard drive. I would be most grateful if i could be shown how to install windows 10 pro onto a brand new hard drive. i have a bootable usb flash drive for windows together with a product key for win 10 pro.

i am not clear as to if i need to format the new hard drive for example.

Thank you.
