This might be completely wrong but I do not think it will hurt anything to try. You can download a free program from this site: http://www.partition-tool.com/easeus-partition-manager/linux-partition-manager.htm that will probably recognize your HDD. Then you can reformat the HDD to NTFS using their program. I have used it to format a drive to Linux and it worked fine. It is worth a try.
