    Clean install Windows 10 on new SSD to rplace failing HDD and corrupte

    How to do a clean install of Windows 10 on a new SSD that will replace a failing HDD and corrupted data files in a Laptop PC?
    There seems to be a lot of old posts that touch on various subjects that I need help with but none that lump them all together. This is a clean install of Windows 10 on a new SSD on a Laptop PC that was previously upgraded to Windows 10 with the free upgrade just prior to the free upgrade becoming unavailable. About 6 months ago intermittent weird problems began to appear and with the help of various support groups and Windows Community we came to the conclusion that the HDD needed to be replaced(failed Seagate's drive test) with an SSD (My Choice) and a clean install of Windows 10(corrupted data files in the OS).
    I was given a URL to download and burn to DVD an ISO file of Windows 10 PRO 64bit OS. I purchased a 240GB Sandisk SSD. I don't need to partition this drive as the single C: partition is adequate for size and speed.
    Is there a step by step procedure listed somewhere that preps(formats?) the SSD using disk management for Windows 10 and then using the ISO file that I burned to a DVD, installs Windows 10 on to my SSD? I am not familiar with ISO files and am assuming that is something that is sent to you to boot from and install from when you order SW from MS.

    It's very simple you need DVD burning software to write the ISO to DVD if you download from ms it will give you the option for DVD or USB. You then set PC to boot from DVD that's it let windows do its thing it will create partition and install login with your ms account and it will activate

    I followed the ISO Download prgram instructions that burned the ISO file to a DVD and then executed the program and did a clean install of Windows 10 PRO 64bit OS. The Feature Update lversion level of the ISO file was 1709. I have reinstalled all of my programs and all of my saved data files. The Unstable Laptop mPC is stable. I also did the clean install on a new SSD that replaced the existing HDD with a great bump in performance. All is well.
