I have a windows 8 computer that I plan to give away and I don't want my
data to be recoverable so I have considered DBAN, and decided to go
another direction, I have just been wondering if I format the hard drive
through another computer via a hard drive reader, will I be able to reinstall
windows through a disk because I promised that to my buyer?
