How to completely clean the HDD has been installed Intel RAID? solved

I donít know whether I post this on right section or not. If not, please move.
Hereís my problem. I have 3 WD 500G HDD, I configured them with RAID 5 before.
But my PC broke, and it cannot power on. I got another PC and I want move 3 WD HDD to this from broke PC
This new PC is no support RAID, so I cannot delete RAID configuration with Intel RAID utility.
Before I can hit ďCtrl+IĒ when boot to enter Intel RAID configuration utility and I can find delete RAID option
And it can completely clean RAID. But now I donít have support RAID motherboard and my friends donít have one, too.
So I want find a tool can completely clean RAID. I have tried a lot of tools, but no luck.
Please help me, if anyone know any tool can completely clean RAID HDD.
I neednít backup data, just completely clean RAID.
I have searched Google, but donít find any useful info.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Here was all tool I have tried.
1) FDISK (DOS)
2) EASEUS Partition Master
3) Delete HDD all configuration when installing Windows 7

If I am understand right, you want to use the drives as standard drives. Assuming there's no data to be saved, you can use DISKPART. Forget FDISK, as that is way old and out of date. Put the drives in the new system. Boot to the Windows installer's screen, and then hit SHIFT+F10 to open a command prompt. You can run DISKPART there. If you check our tutorials section you'll find the commands to use with DISKPART. It's simple, quick, and then will let you continue on with the setup.
