    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.

    Since you cannot do it under Windows environment. Use gparted as suggested above or you can also use:
    Bootable Partition Manger | MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Edition and Rufus - Create bootable USB to create a bootable USB, boot up from USB then clean up from there.

    Here is another way to get WinPE to boot into memory to run diskpart commands..

    Right Charm -> Change PC Settings -> Update and Recovery -> Recovery -> Advanced Startup ->
    Restart Now -> Troubleshoot -> Advanced Options -> Command Prompt

    Don't need bootable media at all..
