actually i need to give it to amazon back for refund so i need to erase it without new ssd as it will come laterThen you would install Windows to your new SSD, and after you are done with that, you can hook the old SSD back up (inside the PC, or a USB to SATA cable), and then secure erase it. Many SSD manufacturer's utilities offer that sort of thing as part of the program, and I'm pretty sure there are other smaller programs out there that can do the same thing.
