Go to computer management , then disk management, then right click the drive there and clcik initialize and then you need to create a new dynamic or gpt disk then create a new simple partition then format.

The easiest way to get to Computer Management is to right click the computer icon (or if you have to hit start button, then right click Computer) and select Manage.

You did a great job telling him exactly what to do to format the drive. I just thought, "hmm, the OP might not know were to find computer management". See, its all about teamwork
