Hello!This situation will not have any perfect outcome,you'll have to make some concessions.As Jim said you could use furring strips as one way.However I would recommend installing metal stud walls.They require minimal attachment to the block,and they are quick and easy to assemble,plus they come ready made w/holes every 2' if you want to run electrical through.Plus it gives you the option to use standard kraft paper insulation.Once you have your metal stud walls up you can drywall them.However if you go the route of using metal studs,when you install the drywall "stand" it up rather than "railroading" it.This will also give you all tapered joints as opposed to butt-joints(much more difficult to work).Have fun!
