    How can I uninstall Windows10 trial, installed on a clean computer?
    Most searches show how to uninstall to an older system.

    Reformat the HDD? Are there any other programs on the HDD that you want to keep? Do you intend to go back to say Win 7?

    Assuming it's the only operating system and you have saved everything you want to keep somewhere you just boot off the install media for whatever OS you want to use, do a custom install, delete any existing partitions, install to the blank hard drive.

    And if all you want to do is wipe the hard drive just boot up something with a partition manager tool, like a linux install media or say partition magic boot disk and remove the partitions.

    Or take the hard drive out, connect it to another pc, and use that to re partition or just delete everything.
