Default Best way to "un-partition" a HDD

I have two physical internal HDD's. One is partitioned, I want to "un-partitioned" it. I'm not sure how to do that. It's my SATA2 drive and not the one with the OS installed on it. It's mostly just free space. I do have GParted, is there a way to do it using that?

GParted will do this just fine for you. Since you already have it there is no reason to go out and try to find Hirens.

Everything is explained.
