Need to know what OS version you are trying to install...and what sort of install media are you using (CD, DVD, USB, etc.). And if it's a disk...what does the disk look like (color).

And by the way...with a brand new HD...you're not going to be able to boot into the "Recovery Partition"...since a brand new HD has not yet been properly setup for this.

Also...the model number A1278 refers to quite a few different models (it's actually a "family" model name). So more specific info on exactly what model MacBook Pro this is could help.
