Thread: Hard Drive Install Issue
02-02-2007, 01:40 PM #1Hard Drive Install Issue
Well i picked up a new 120 GB hard drive to replace the 60 GB i had in my macbook.
After removing 60 GB drive i put the bracket on the new 120 and slid it into the dock. I booted up the machine, put the OS X install disk in a began to reinstall OS X. After picking English as my language it then went to ask me to "Select a Destination" volume to install Mac OS X. Problem here is that i do not see any destination, no hard drive is showing up.
Now this is a brand new drive and it was installed correctly. This is my first shot at doing this on a Mac notebook....is there something i am missing?
[Edit] I should mention that disk utility does see the new hard drive.adampenney.com

Have you tried using the disk utility to partition and format the drive?
I just ordered myself a 120gb drive for my MacBook, Hope to get it next week.
