Connect your HDD to your system.

Put UBCD 5.1.1 in the optical drive or USB port and boot with it.

UBCD 5.1.1 -> HDD -> Wiping -> choose a tool compatible with your HDD.

For normal cases, any tool will do.

Generally speaking, HDDErase 4 should be the fastest, but I don't know if it will be compatible with your specific HDD.

WARNING!!! Please be aware of your still-in-use main HDD. You do NOT want to confuse between your main HDD and the one you really want to wipe. If you can, and if you know what you are doing, it would be even better to disconnect your main HDD, so no wiping tool can use that drive and wipe it by mistake.

The HDD models and full sizes are usually helpful to correctly identify the HDD you really want to wipe.
