    Not quite:

    Disconnect SSD.

    Boot from your installation media to begin install on the m2.

    Delete all partitions from the m2 during the install process. Let the install finish. It will reboot a few times.

    Shut down and reconnect the SSD.

    Boot from m2 and go to Windows Disk Management.

    Locate the SSD there and delete all partitions from it. (I assume you don't need anything on the SSD).

    The SSD is then 100% unallocated space. It has no volumes to shrink.

    Make new volumes on the SSD as you see fit while still in Windows Disk Managment. However many you need.

    That should work unless you have some weirdo complications not yet mentioned.
    That Disc Management?After clean install on M2 then In my case delete Data(D:) and (Disc 0 Partition 1) ? and make a new volume for SSD?

    I cannot tell from your picture if disk 0 partition 1 and disk 0 partition 4 are part of the m2 or part of the SSD. You have to figure that out. After the clean install on the m2, you would NOT want to delete anything from the m2.......but you could delete as many partitions as you want from the SSD without affecting the brand new clean install to the m2.

    Here's mine: disk 0 is an SSD with Windows and all programs. Disk 1 is an HDD with data only.

    Install what? That video doesn't show how to install anything. All it does is show you how to make a volume and partition it out of unallocated space.


    YouTube
    and how can i figure which partition is which to delete?

    Do you or don't you want to delete ALL partitions on the SSD after the clean install to the m2?

    You certainly have to know how to tell which is the m2 and which is the SSD when looking at them in Disk Management. After your clean install, C should be on the m2. The m2 may be disk 0 or disk 1 or something else. Look at my pic above of my Disk Management.

    You tell me.

    You have a disk 0 and a disk 1.

    Disk 0 is about 250 GB

    Disk 1 is about 1 TB.

    Which is the SSD??

    Judging by what you have said, I assume you want to get rid of everything on the SSD after the clean install to the m2.

    Decide which is the SSD and delete ALL partitions on it AFTER the clean install to the other drive. You would do that by starting with a right click of the partitions on the SSD .
