I actually ran into this a little while ago doing the same thing trying to repurpose my old drives. I'm sure there's a much easier way but what I did is disconnect all the drives except the one I wanted to wipe. Then I booted up with a bootable usb with windows 10 installation on it(you don't need to buy a key). During the install it will ask you what drive you want to install on. On that screen you should be able to delete the partitions. I even used this method to fix an unrecognized drive in windows.
