Windows 7: Formatting drive with Active KillDisk

Windows 8.1 Pro
Formatting drive with Active KillDisk

I'm finding the process itself to be somewhat confusing. Not the creating a Bootable CD/Floppy/USB part, but the formatting part.

Active Killdisk is used for wiping drives not formatting. I would advise using the Easeus Partition Master for formatting and partitioning. The free version is compatible with 32 bit Windows 7 but the trial version supports both 32 and 64 bit versions.
