Alright, first off, I'm new to the Mac family.. I don't know a lot about them, but I am trying to learn.. I'd much rather fix my toys myself then take them somewhere else.. >.<

I bought a used MacBook Pro and I'm wanting to do a new OS install to make sure it's clean and their data is gone.. I put the disk in, tell it to install, it asks me to restart, I do, and nothing.. I hear the drive spinning but all that happens is the screen flashes gray for a few seconds then flashes black.. I've let it run and flash for 10+ mins and then I give up, pop the disk out and it just loads normally..

If someone could help me, that would be great.. I've done searches and I just can't seem to find anyone having the same issue or how to solve it..
