So i ripped my macbook pro's ssd and bought an enclosure for it to add to my desktop.

the pc detects the ssd which is good and i go to Disk Management and i get this:

That unallocated space was me deleting 2 volumes. I want to completely format the whole ssd but for some reason i cant delete that 200mb healthy partition. I want to COMPLETELY format this sdd...

what do?

I've had this problem trying to delete certain Windows 8 partitions in Windows 7. The solution is to use 3rd party tools like PartitionMagic, or do it from a Linux live CD.

If you boot your computer with the windows installation disc, then you can format/partition/delete from there. Best thing to do is delete all the partitions there, then in windows you can create 1 partition and then format it and then you won't have that 200mb partition anymore.

I would try either:
1. The manufacturers tools- these usually include some sought of wipe tool
2. Gparted
3. Any other tools which completely erases a drive- usually you just need to run it for the first few parts of the drive.

Also, are you sure it's an SSD and not a HDD?
