If you are sure you want to remove all partitions from a disk, you may run
$ sudo fdisk /dev/sdX
and select option "o", then "w" to write and exit
Note: o create a new empty DOS partition table
At least, this is how I do it.
But, as Jordon said, that, and also create new partitions and format,
can be done during install
