hi, i'm building a new system. I have a old system with a dell windows 7 home premium os with product key and would like to use the old hdd on the new system. But i would like to wipe that hard drive first.

How would i go about doing this?

since my new system won't have a disk drive, i would use boot from stick drive a windows 7 install, correct?

Installation using a USB flash drive is most convenient if optical drive is not readily available.
