My Brother's computer(ASUS) crashed one day. I decided to create a windows 10 installation media directly from the bios.The screen was stretched out and blurry and the computer ran slow. I have aborted the setup a few times when the screen said "Setup Starting" taking so long, I didn't have time to see it through, so I aborted the setup. When I finally got some time tonight, I was able to attempt the actual setup. I deleted all partitions as instructed and tried to install on unallocated space. The installation gave me error, so I decided to shut the computer down and try again, without directly booting from the bios. I was able to get to the proper installation screen without this weird 4:3 to 16:9 formatting and when I got to the partition screen, I saw that it showed only one partition which showed 0mb. Not 0mb available, 0mb period. What could have happened?

The partition in the hard drive that you plan to install Windows 10 in needs to formatted in the NTFS file system before you can install it.
You cannot install it in an unallocated partition.

You didn't say if your brother's ASUS is a desktop or a laptop.
What model name and model number is it?
