I think you can use DISKPART to initialize a hard disk.
Open up the Start Menu and type “diskpart” in the run box. Press enter. You’ll be prompted by the Windows UAC to authorize admin access to the DISKPART tool.
A command-prompt-like window will open up, only the prompt will say “DISKPART”. At that prompt, type “list disk”.
In the list output on our machine you can see the computer’s hard drive (119GB) and the removable SD card (14GB). It is absolutely critical you note the proper disk number. DISKPART commands are immediate and without any warning. If you type in the wrong disk number, you’re going to have a really bad time.
After identifying your HDD’s disk number, enter the following command “select disk #” where # is the disk number of your HDD.
Whatever commands you execute after this point will only make changes to the selected disk; now would be a good time to double check you’ve selected the right disk just to be extra safe.
Next, now enter the command “clean”
The clean command zeroes out the sectors of the disk that contain the partition data.
After cleaning the disk, enter the following command “create partition primary”
Type format quick fs=ntfs, press Enter
Type assign, press Enter
Now type exit, to exit from DISKPART.
