Opened up my MBP to replace the HD with a SSD, put it back together and this is what I get when it tries to boot the install disc. Up until this point everything is fine, it displays the apple logo fine. Any ideas on what the issue is?

What happens when you replace the old hard drive back in the machine?

Same thing... I didn't touch any other connections other than removing the keyboard and removing the hard drive.

You must have an older MBP if you had to remove the keyboard to get at the hard drive. In any event, check the video cable which goes from the Logic board up through hinge area. Something (possibly the video cable) may be getting pinched off. That's about the only thing I can suggest for now.
