    Boot the computer from the Windows 10 USB flash drive or DVD. Go through until you get the option for a custom install. Select the custom install option. The next screen should show the hard drive (or SSD) with nothing but one big unallocated space on it. Highlight the unallocated space and click Next. Let Windows setup create what it wants on the hard drive or SSD.

    Lol, you didnt understand me right ? :), i should have added question : Should I create a new partition manualy or leave windows do it, since i have already done the above commands !

    edit : I wanted to do a fully HDD format instead of quick format (meaby to get a better HDD performance )

    The answer is still the same. The best way to avoid future problems is to let Windows setup partition the hard drive/SSD by picking the unallocated space to install to and clicking on Next.
