    Which program did you use to partition the hard drive? I think you can partition it with cfdisk if default program does not let you do it. Take a look at this thread, as it may be similar to your case (the same procedure).

    I am not sure why the drive is reported as read only. Try creating smaller partition (do not partition whole drive).
    Otherwise, sorry, I do not know what else to suggest.
