    New Hard Disk cannot be detected
    I have installed new Hard Disk in Mac book pro 17 " i7 as original HDD is damaged.

    I could not see Hard Disk at boot option if I press alt to choose where to boot from.

    I have launched with os x installer from dvd and check in Disk utility ,there is new hard disk.
    then I have erased Hardisk. made partition using by GUID for several, tried to install OS X. Failed several times.

    please help me how to install osx on new hard disk.

    You have to format it to work on Mac. You need to go into disk utility and format it then you should be able to install OS X from there.
