    Hi, Welcome to 8F.

    Boot from 8 DVD and goto Repair console > Command Prompt (Hit enter after each line)

    list disk
    select disk x (x = being the disk number of your HDD)
    create partition primary
    format fs=ntfs quick

    Reboot and try setup again (I use this for USB drives, but they are not partitioned, I imagine this will kill all partitions on the disk and create just one new one)
