I am assuming that your friend is connected to the network using an ethernet network adapter.
For the first option, your friend needs to setup an adhoc wireless network where you will have to join. Then your friend will bridge his ethernet and wireless network adapter in Network Connections. Then try repairing your wireless network adapter. You should be able to acquire an IP address.
For the other option, you still need the adhoc wireless network. The difference is your friend will enable Internet Connection Sharing on the ethernet network adapter. This will allow your friend's Windows to give you an IP address and act as a gateway.
