Disk Management will not work simply because the sky box (amstrad & Samsung) use a propitiatory OS that windows does not recognise. You have to use the windows/dos utility diskpart, list disk, delete volumes. This has to be run from the command prompt.
Hirens boot cd will do it, it's free and can be burnt to a CD or USB.
+1 for using DISKPART.
I managed to do it a few years ago and can't think for the life of me if I used software than the normal format through windows.
