    PleaseHELP. with my MacBook Pro
    Hi I have a Macbook pro 2010 i bought it used, everything was fine it came with Lion in it.

    Once i woke up and i started to have Kernal Panic errors, so i start thinking well the screen turns on and the apple logo loads, so the motherboard is ok, now its loading so its also not a RAM problem, so only guess left was HardDrive, which i tried a universal one i had at home, switched it and it worked, it solved the Kernal Panic, now i tried to install Leopard in this new HardDrive which i don't remember where it came from, but it's not letting me it gives me a error continuesly saying Filesystem verify or repair failed, when i tried to mount, repair, verify, etc. So i bought another one and this new one its not even reading it, i mean everything loads correctly computers boots from DVD drive, and it ask's for the languague i want to install in it, then i agree and when it comes to the time to select a hard drive to install it in, its not showing anything,, which means the dvd or something its not reading the HD. Can someone please help me? Is the HardDrive i bought corrupt? or its something with the conection with the HARDDrive what can i do?

    Thank you please reply here or at my email fwaisfeld@gmail.com

    Thanks

    Did you partition/format the new drive? In the install screen go to Disk Utility, then partition the disk, that will also format it for writing. That would be my first guess.

    Honestly I can't really speculate on what the issue with the drive is without more information. I would see what it takes to return the drive. I haven't ever really had issues like you describe and I have replaced a lot of drives. Hard drives are one of those things that once they start showing errors I usually look into replacing them. In this case since it is a new drive you might be within the warranty to get it replaced at no cost.
