I had this problem: a MacBook was formatted in NTFS and was unable to format in Mac OS system with Disk Utility from the Mac install CD

So I booted this MacBook into terminal mode (Boot and keeping T letter down) and with an other Mac, both linked with Firewire cable, I formatted the disk with the Disk utility on the second Mac.

At first it was not possible to format the disk as every options was in grey...but I unplugged the firewire cable and plugged it again and, miracle, it came possible to format it.

And I booted up the MacBook keeping the command key down and the CD in and installed the Mac Os X

Sorry for my english, it's not my first language
