There is no method that I would trust. Windows create two many caches all over the system drive. No way to be sure they're all gone.

Use the Windows Media Create Tool to create a bootable DVD or thumb. Than zap the drive completely -- I normally use DBAN. Then do a basic Win 10 install from the media your created. It doesn't take long at all.

Pretty straight forward and you'll know it's done right.
