Download Gparted from their site, burn it to a cd or usb(which ever you downloaded) then boot to it.Then you can destroy all the partitions on the new ssd and then reformat it to ntfs. I've used it many times from an Ubuntu live dvd, it's easy and very fast. But NEVER use it to adjust(shrink or extend) partitions in windows, for that use windows own disk management. but to destroy, reformat or repartition ssd's and hdd's it's the perfect tool.
