Get your friend to tell you what the name and password is for the local administrator account. Even domain-joined PCs have a local administrator account you can use to sign on to the machine without any need for the domain. Once you're signed on you can change it to a stand-alone system and add any other local accounts you need.

You would have to have a local administrator name (could be "administrator" or could be changed) and the password, once logged on go to System \ Advanced System Settings \ Computername \ Change and select Workgroup with any name you like.
