How do I remove an EFI System partition from a drive in Windows 7?

I have an external HD which used to be my TimeMachine drive. I got a different drive for that, so I want the original drive back as an external on my Windows box, but it has this random 200 MB partition labeled as EFI System Partition. How do I get rid of this?

"On the command prompt type
diskpart and answer to any possible UAC prompt.
On the new diskpart prompt, type
list disk. Note the Disk ### column.
Type, select disk ### (with

being the disk you wish to delete. Usually the disk with partition 0 with a size of 200 MB)

NOTE: The disk may not show the 200MB partition in the disk list in Diskpart even if it exists.
Finish by typing, clean.
Type exit to exit diskpart

Have fun!"
