    I have recently erased the entire MAC HD (not the partition, the entire thing) and to try and get it back working, I have launched into internet recovery.

    Unfortunately when the disk utilities loads and I select the option to reinstall the OS, it asks for a location, of which there are none!

    I have looked at creating a partition but it's limited to a few MB...

    HELP!

    When you get to the recovery screen, start Disk Utility. Can you see there drive from there?

    What year model Mac are you on?

    If there is a partition on the drive, delete it, and create a new partition. Make sure to format in macOS journaled, with a GUID partition scheme.
