    Note: I posted this in OSX Yosemite but think this is the more appropriate section, sorry I'm new here :( How do I delete a post?

    Hi everyone. I have a question I can't quite figure out.

    I have a mid 2012 running OS X yosemite with a 1TB SSD in my primary HD bay and a 1tb 5400rpm drive in my cd slot.

    The SSD is my primary boot drive and when I installed it I just cloned my original hard drive. My SSD is partitoned with windows as well.

    I just finished school and both of my HD's are a mess. I'd like to wipe the mac partitions, and reformat my drive and reinstall Yosemite and use the secondary HHD as storage, without wiping my windows partition

    What's the easiest way to go about this and get a better system in place?

    Create an OS X USB installer and use the built in Disk Utility to erase the partitions.
