    Mac OS X Tiger
    Hi, for about a year now I have been running Ubuntu Linux as my primary and only operating system on my 1st generation Intel Macbook. I am selling it to a relative so I am trying to reinstall the original operating system it came with, Mac OS X 10.4. When I try to install it, the disc cannot find my hard drive. I have googled this issue and could not find anything. If anyone has any idea of what to do, please help me out. Thanks

    If you have access to Disk Utility from your OS disc, reformat your HDD to Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)

    In addition to reformatting that HDD to the Mac standard, you'll probably also have to reset the PRAM/NVRAM after running Linux on that machine.
