    Replacing the Hard Drive?? Help
    Hello all, I wanted to upgrade my macbook HDD from 60GB to 120GB so I bought this from newegg (and the reviews say that it does work with the macbook):

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822149057

    ANyway, I took out the 60GB Mac Hard Drive and popped in my 120GB (and it fits) and I started my mac with the installation cd and when I get to the "Select a Destination volume to install the MAC OS X Software" screen, the hard drive does not show up in the options, nothing does its blank.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    G'day needsomehelp, I'm not 100% positive on this one, but you may need to navigate to Utilities>Disc Utility on the instal DVD/CD and format the new internal drive first???

    From your last post, I take it that you did need to format the new internal HD. Glad you're all sorted out now~
