You need to set the drive up in BIOS properly, it should auto detect it, then use a version of fdisk that asks if you want to enable large disk support, to which you answer yes, you will now be able to create a primary and or extended partitions up to the full capacity of your drive.
I have come across this quite often, someone doesn't use fdisk properly and only create a primary partiton of 2 GB leaving the rest of the drive un-partitioned so it cant be formatted or used.
