Edit.. Are you going to be reinstalling an os to it? If your going to reformatt the hard drive do as above but if it say a second hard drive just go into disk management and delete all partitions then format inside of windows and what os are you going to be using?

If 2nd HDD u can just right clicl on the disk n choose format in the window.
If u want to reinstall OS or clean install, u have to calsulate whether u want to make partition or not.
