Your new disk is shown as Disk 0, so the next step is type into the command line:

select disk 0


and then press enter

then type

clean

and press enter again

then type

convert gpt

and press enter

At that point, your new disk will be one giant partition and you are done

Have you tried EaseUS Partition Master?
