There might be a problem if its not letting you format the drive. You can use a 3rd party software to create and format the drive before you do the installation. I would recommend Hirens Boot CD. You can launch mini xp and format the drive from there..After that try to reinstall the system again
Also make sure the hdd is the primary master and that it's been seen by the bios and the installer.
I don't know if you can link to items that are not "legal" in these forums. If your friend has a linux boot disc you can use, to make the partition you need. Try ubuntu or knoppix or any other distro that you can burn to a disc or even better you can use those distro to make a usb boot drive.
For linux you use either "cfdisk" or "fdisk" to create the NTFS file system. With hirens you can go to the partition manager to create the new partition. Or fdisk or any other partition software that available in hirens
