Sd card not wiping

Hello all,

I've been using a raspberry pi 2 with retropie installed as my media center lately and after some research I've come across another operating system I want to try, the problem is that I can not wipe the boot partition from the sd card.

There is 2 partitions on the 8gb sd card one that's 600mb and is called boot and the other is just blank storage. When I plug it into my pc it assigns it a letter but t only brings up that 600mb boot and won't let me see the rest of the storage.

When I try formatting it using the official sd card wiper it doesn't take the partition away. Diskpart won't work and easeus partition magic won't work either.

Is there anything I can do to wipe it and get everything back to a clean slate so I can install another operating system?

Please help....


I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
