Could you somehow partition and format your hard drive on another
Then you could try to install plop boot manager on it and install
a linux live system on a usb stick.
plop boot manager allows you to boot from anything (cd-rom, usb drive, etc.)
even if your BIOS doesn't have an entry for it.
linux live: there are plenty of good ones around:
these are based on slackware
grml is based on debian
